Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C
Place 100g sugar in mixing bowl, mill for 10 sec / speed 10. Transfer to a dish & set aside.
Insert butterfly whisk. Place egg whites into mixing bowl and mix 3 min / 37 deg C / speed 3.5 without measuring cup.
Continue to mix 5 min / 37 deg C / speed 3 while gradually adding the reserved sugar to get a glossy meringue.
Place parchment paper onto a baking tray.Add the almonds & chocolate and mix 6 sec / / speed 3. Tip mixture into a glass bowl and from here drop good teaspoons of the mixture onto parchment paper, not too close together (12-16 pieces).
Place tray in oven the turn off the heat immediately.Leave overnight (or at least 3 hours until the oven is cold) with the door cloor closed.This is why the original recipe that I converted it from was called "Forgotten Cookies".
Variations - also great with Craisins in place of some of the nuts. I sometimes put a Craisin on top for decoration before I "cook" them in any case.Actually, you could substitute any dried fruit you like.Also works well with roasted salted almonds (chopped) in place of the plain ones for that salty sweet taste.This recipe was converted from "Forgotten Cookies" by Niki Bezzant which was originally from a very old American recipe traditionally made with pecans. The cookies are 'forgotten' because you turn the oven off as soon as they go in and you then leave the oven closed overnight while they 'cook'. If in a hurry, 3 hours is enough. Also for TM31.
