  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 150C (fan 130C, gas mark 2).

  2. Step 2:

    In a large clean bowl add the whites and whisk with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

  3. Step 3:

    Very slowly whisk in the sugars with the mixer on a high speed until you have a glossy, voluminous mixture. Fold through the cardamom.

  4. Step 4:

    Fit a piping bag with 1cm plain nozzle and fill with the meringue mixture.

  5. Step 5:

    Onto two large lined baking sheets pipe Christmas tree shapes by piping a triangle starting at the base with the longest line and decreasing the length of the lines as you go up to the top of the triangle, and then piping a trunk at the bottom.

  6. Step 6:

    Place in the oven and turn the heat down straight away to 140C (fan 120C, gas mark 1), and cook for 30 minutes.

  7. Step 7:

    Turn the oven off and leave in the oven until cold about 4 hours.

  8. Step 8:

    To decorate, melt the chocolate and pipe thin bands across the trees to look like tinsel and sprinkle on the decoration of your choice.
