cappucino meringues

surprisingly decent final product.  a little flatter than id like but when you start baking at 10:30pm.. welp that extra 5 minutes of mixing just isnt worth it.

recipe from joy of cooking:

4 egg whites
1-2 teas vanilla
1/2 teas cream of tartar

blend the shit out egg whites until frothy.  combine 1 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons cocoa, 1 teas [not 2.5 as in the recipe] instant coffee; add to egg whites 1 tablespoon at a time.  blend the shit out of it until stiff peaks form.  pipe into ginormous sticky oozy mess and bake at 200 for 1 hour. 

optional step:  be really annoyed to discover meringues in the left side of the oven burned underneath but those on the right were fine.
