Chocolate chip meringue cookies
2 hr 8 min
These delicate little cookies are the perfect combination of vanilla and chocolate. They are light and airy and melt-in-your-mouth which makes them an irresistible treat. Make them to share with a crowd at a party or to give them as gifts during the holiday season. If you prefer chewy meringues, make them the day before you plan to eat them. You can make these cookies mini if you prefer. Just use heaping teaspoons of batter; not tablespoons. Or for a decorative, star-shaped appearance, spoon the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe into mounds.
