Cocoa Almond Meringues (TWD)

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) was chosen by Mike of Ugly Food for an Ugly Dude: Cocoa Almond Meringues.  Dorie describes them as small cookies that "have the rough, craggy surface of stone nuggets.  Their interiors are wonderfully chewy and their flavor a bit caramelish, slightly nutty and quite chocolaty."

I loved how quick and easy these cookies were to make.  I think "slightly nutty" is a good description because despite being called Cocoa Almond Meringues, I'm not sure you'd know there were (ground) almonds in them unless you saw the recipe.  Regardless, these are especially great if you're craving something chocolate but want something light.

Thanks Mike, for hosting this week. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the TWD Blogroll, to see how everyone else enjoyed these crunchy, chewy, chocolately treats!
