For a light, low-fat sweet, consider Hazelnut Meringues. You can make them a day before you plan to serve them.
To save time, buy hazelnuts that have already been peeled, or even peeled and toasted. Hazelnut extract is available at specialty and gourmet stores. You can find superfine sugar at grocery stores, or you could just process regular sugar to powder in a blender or food processor.
These melting meringues, flavored with toasted nuts and just a bit of chocolate, are sure to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.
