Step 1

Preheat oven to 250°F. Using the straight side of the round cut-out ?C? (2 in.) from the Round Double Cut-Outs Set, trace 36 circles onto parchment paper. Flip parchment over and place on cookie pan.

Step 2

In large bowl, whip Meringue Powder, water and salt with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. With mixer running, gradually add sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Whip until stiff peaks form and mixture triples in volume. Reduce speed to low and add 1/4 cup cocoa powder, scraping down bottom and sides of bowl as necessary and beating until well combined.

Step 3

Using a decorating bag fitted with tip 1A, pipe meringue about 1/4 to 3/8 in. thick over the traced circles as a guideline. Flatten points with tip of finger.

Step 4

Bake 35-40 minutes or until outsides of meringues feel firm and crisp. Cool completely on pan.

Step 5

In large bowl, whip cream and confectioners? sugar on high speed until very soft peaks form. Add Piping Gel, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla and remaining 1/4 cup cocoa powder; whip until stiff peaks form, scraping down bottom and sides of bowl as necessary. Place in decorating bag fitted with tip 1M.

Step 6

To assemble merveilleux, pipe a rosette of chocolate whipped cream to cover 12 of cooled meringues. Top with a second meringue and repeat with whipped cream. Invert remaining meringues flat sides up and press into whipped cream. Freeze merveilleux at least 30 minutes. Refrigerate remaining whipped cream.

Step 7

Remove half of the merveilleux from freezer for icing; keep other half in freezer. Spread a very thin layer of chocolate whipped cream over the sides of the merveilleux. Roll in chopped Candy Melts Candy to cover. Using a decorating bag fitted with tip 1M, cover top with a rosette of chocolate whipped cream. Repeat with remaining frozen merveilleux.

Step 8

Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving to allow meringue cookies to soften. Merveilleux are best eaten within 24 hours so the meringue cookies maintain some of their crisp, chewy texture.
