Preheat the oven to 110°C (225°F/Gas ¼) and line a baking tray (sheet) with silicone (baking) paper.
Put the egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk on a slow speed, gradually adding the caster
(superfine) sugar and increasing the speed. Continue to whisk until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold in the icing (powdered/pure) sugar and cocoa powder – do not overwork the mixture.
Spoon into a piping (pastry) bag, snip a hole in the end and pipe 3.5cm (1½ inch) bulbs onto the tray. Sprinkle with cocoa nibs and bake for 1½ hours, lowering the oven to its lowest setting (or leaving the door slightly ajar) halfway through baking. Leave to cool and then dip the bases in tempered chocolate
