For the meringue bases, whip egg whites with granulated sugar, vanilla bean pulp and salt. Sift confectioners’ sugar and dry mix with hazelnuts and cinnamon. Fold into the meringue mixture and immediately spiralize into the circles. Bake or dry at 110-120 °C for 60-90 minutes. Leave the oven door open a little with a wooden spoon so that the excess moisture can escape. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Then spread a thin layer of chocolate on both bases to prevent subsequent soaking.
