- In a mixing bowl, add egg whites, salt, and lemon juice. Beat using an electric
mixer until foamy. Slowly add the sugar and continue beating until completely

meringue mixture and pipe as many mounds on the baking sheet as you can
leaving 2-inch spaces between each mound.

Reduce the temperature to 220 F and bake for 15 more minutes. Then, reduce
the temperature once more to 190 F and cook for 15 minutes. Let the meringues
cool for 2 hours. Drizzle with the dark chocolate before serving.
