Light-As-Air Chocolate Dipped Meringue Cookies

I haven't actually made meringue before but I saw a recipe and thought about dipping them in chocolate and then I thought, "Isn't everything good when it's dipped in chocolate?" Plus this recipe only has 5 ingredients and it's so easy and a little different than a regular cookie recipe.

What you need:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 t. vanilla
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. cocoa
  • chocolate chips
Here is a picture of the ingredients you will need. Yes, I'm almost out of vanilla!

In a bowl, whip the egg whites and the vanilla.

Whip them until they get very fluffy and form soft peaks.

Slowly add in the cocoa and the sugar and whip together.

Drop by teaspoonful on a greased cookie sheet. I used a plastic bag to drop mine on the sheet to make a little extra pattern in the cookies. Bake at 300F for 30-35 minutes.

After you take them out of the oven and let them cool a bit. Melt some chocolate chips. Take the cookies a dip half of them in to the melted chocolate. Let them dry on wax paper.

I made these the other day but added my own little twist I put mini chocolate chips in them. I have tried to make meringue cookies before and I could not get the egg whites to whip up this time they came out perfect. Thank you for this recipe I hope my in laws like them they are being used as gifts.
