Recipe for Chocolate Almond Meringue Puffs

Recipe Ingredients:
tablespoons granulated sugar
packets sugar substitute
1-1/2  teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
egg whites, room temperature
1/2  teaspoon vanilla
1/4  teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4  teaspoon almond extract
1/8  teaspoon salt
1-1/2  ounces sliced almonds
tablespoons seedless raspberry fruit spread

Cooking Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 275F. Combine granulated sugar, sugar substitute and cocoa powder in small bowl; set aside.

2.  Place egg whites in small bowl; beat at high speed of electric mixer until foamy. Add vanilla, cream of tartar, almond extract and salt; beat until soft peaks form. Add sugar mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.

3.  Line baking sheet with foil. Spoon 15 equal mounds of egg white mixture onto foil. Sprinkle with almonds.

4.  Bake 1 hour. Turn oven off but do not open door. Leave puffs in oven 2 hours longer or until completely dry. Remove from oven; cool completely

5.  Stir fruit spread and spoon about 1/2 teaspoon onto each meringue just before serving. Tip : Puffs are best if eaten the same day they're made. If necessary, store in airtight container, adding fruit topping at time of serving.
