  1. Preheat the oven to gas 0.5, 120˚C, 100˚C fan. Line two large baking sheets with baking paper.​
  2. Mix the coffee granules with 1 tsp or so of boiling water, stir well to dissolve. Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form, then slowly add the caster sugar and whisk a few minutes, until glossy and the sugar has dissolved. Stir in 2 tsp of the coffee mix.
  3. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle, then pipe 3.5cm diameter mini meringue stars onto the baking tray.
  4. Bake the meringues in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn off the heat and leave the meringues in the oven for 1 hour before removing to cool.​
  5. While the meringues are cooling, melt the chocolate and butter in a small glass bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. When melted, remove and allow to cool for 10 mins.
  6. Dip the cooled meringues into the chocolate, holding the sides so as not to break the peaks. Place back on the baking paper to set.
  7. Whisk the cream with the Drambuie honeyed whisky liqueur to taste. Sandwich the chocolate-dipped meringues together with ½ a teaspoon or so of the Drambuie honeyed whisky liqueur cream. Finish with a couple of puffs of gold glitter spray on the meringue tips.

Pairing suggestion: These taste great with a neat serve of Drambuie honeyed whisky liqueur.
