Bokke pootjes #2

Last night I got round to trying out the bokke pootjes recipe that I had found. Only I left the recipe at work so coupled together what I could remember twith a little creation! Original recipe is found here with lots of other tasty dutch treats!

Bokke pootjes Mel's version

For the meringue:
6 egg whites salt
150 g white caster sugar
sliced almonds

For the filling:
25 g butter
200 g icing sugar
2 tablespoons strong coffee

For the garnish: milk chocolate, melted

Beat the egg whites until in soft peaks. Gradually add the sugar and beat until stiff peaks. Put the meringue mixture in a piping bag and pipe 6cm long meringues onto a greased, lined baking tray, or if you don't have an icing bag (or you find it under the sink looking particularly manky) you can use a sandwich bag with the corner cut off. Scatter over the sliced almonds and place the tray in a preheated oven at 100°C and cook for 1 hour and then leave to cool in the oven. In the meantime, por the coffee onto the sugar and mix to a smooth paste, then work in the butter. Sandwich meringues together with the filling. Plunge the goats feet into the melted chocolate and leave them to set.
