Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies

I had waited long enough to use my new mixer. For its maiden voyage I chose chocolate chip meringues. We used to buy the chocolate chip meringue cookies from Trader Joes when I was little and I just thought they were the best treat. Light, crunchy and sugary. I think I agree with my five year old self; they’re dangerous.IMG_0255Also, no surprise, LOVE THE MIXER. I just got to stand there and watch it do its thing. I’m making stiff peaks, no big deal.

I found this recipe on Allrecipes. It called for:
3 egg whites
1/8 tsp cream of tartar (contrary to its name, it is a powder)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Beat together the first three ingredients until soft peaks form. Slowly beat in sugar until stiff peaks form. Fold in cocoa powder and chocolate chips.

Plop teaspoon size drops (I did them a bit larger) onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 at 300 degrees.

Then try your best not to eat them all. Wish me luck!!
