Friday evenings are my favorite. The perfect time to relax ! They inspired me these Yin Yang coconut & dark chocolate rocks : black & white, sweet coconut & slightly bitter chocolate, crunchy outside & moist inside. A delicious way to illustrate the chinese Yin & Yang philosophy. you're going to levitate !!!

Here's what we need :
4 egg whites, 200g sugar, 200g ground coconut, 40g flour, 100g dark chocolate (60%), 1 teaspoon ginger powder, 1 teaspoon 4 spices mix.
Here's what we do :
Preheat oven at 350°F
first, let's make a wonderful Italian meringue (relax, it is not as hard as it seems) : beat egg whites until stiff, with nice peaks.
make a syrup with the sugar & 66g water on high heat, pour it on egg whites beating on medium speed until cold.
In a bowl, mix flour & coconut. Add the meringue carefully.
Arrange small amounts of batter (use a table spoon to help) on a baking sheet covered with parchment.
Bake 15 minutes (they must be very very slightly brown)
Melt dark chocolate in "bain marie", add ginger & spices. Pour half of each Yin Yang rock in chocolate.
relax, savour & share!
