   Recipe by: Glorious Liqueurs, Mary Aurea Morris
         Preheat oven to 250 degrees; line a large cookie sheet with parchment
   paper.  In a cup, dissolve the espresso powder in the water. Stir in the
   creme de cacao and vanilla extract; cool to room temperature. In a small,
   deep bowl with an electric mixer on high speed, whip the egg whites until
   foamy.  Gradually beat in all but 2 tablespoons of the sugar, 1 tablespoon
   at a time, alternating with a scant 1/4 teaspoon of the espresso mixture at
   a time.  Continue beating until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
   
        In a small bowl, stir together the cocoa with the remaining 2
   tablespoons sugar.  With a rubber spatula, quickly but gently fold cocoa
   into the meringue, being careful to avoid deflating the egg whites. Drop
   the meringue by teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 25 to 30
   minutes, or until they are firm on the outside, but still a bit soft on the
   inside.  While hot, remove the kisses with a spatula to a wire rack. Cool
   completely; store in a container with a loose fitting lid. Penny Halsey
