They are lovely gems--two cocoa, crunchy meringues sandwiching a delightful chocolate ganache. The recipe only makes 8 sandwiches, which is just as well because we would have eaten as many as there were available.
|Whipping up the meringue|
|Cocoa mixture and chopped almonds, ready to add|
|The circles I drew to serve as a guide for the cookies.|
|The ganache, coming to room temperature to be spread on the cookies.|
|The meringues out of the oven (minus two "rejects" which were eaten before they could be spread with ganache.)|
|The finished sandwiches!|
