Chocolate Meringue Cookies!

Yummy Melt-in-your-Mouth Chocolate Meringues!

This recipe is from Taste of Homes' Best Loved Cookies & Bars. This is the first time I've made Meringues & I think they turned out great! (I think mine looked better than the Test Kitchen's.)


1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tarter
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Sugar
3 Tablespoons baking Cocoa

3 Tablespoons mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips (optional)
3 Tablespoons finely crushed Walnuts or Almonds (optional)

Place egg whites in a large mixing bowl & let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Beat egg whites on high until foamy. Add salt and cream of tarter until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar one tablespoon at a time until stiff peaks form (about 6 minutes). Beat in cocoa and fold in chocolate chips or nuts if desired.

Cut a hole in the corner of a pastry bag and insert a Large Round or Star Shaped Pastry Tip. Fill the bag with the meringue. Squeeze out hearts or round star shapes about 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until firm to the touch. Remove meringues and place on wire racks to cool. Store cookies in an airtight container.

Happy Baking!
