Chocolate Meringue Cookies

I was trying to make 2 batches of macarons today. The first batch didn’t come out as good as I expected.  Feeling a bit frustrated, I decided to change plan. I started making some meringue cookies. They came out nice but not yummy enough. So I drizzled some chocolate on top…..and wow ! What a difference ! Not only are they scrumptious, they are also low in calories and flourless ! What a treat !

Makes about 2 dozens

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  1. Preheat oven to 225°F
  2. Using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, whisk egg whites and cream of tartar at medium speed until frothy
  3. Increase speed to high and slowly add in sugar
  4. Whisk until a stiff peak is formed
  5. Pour into piping bag with star or round tip
  6. Pipe onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, 2 inches apart
  7. Bake for about 35-40 minutes, cookies should be dry to touch, turn off oven
  8. Leave cookies in oven for about 2 more hours to dry
  9. Remove from oven to cool completely on rack
  10. On stove, melt chocolate in a small pot over a pan of simmering water at medium heat
  11. Drizzle chocolate over cookies with a fork
  12. Let sit until chocolate is dry
