Christmas Meringues
Serves: 36 cookies
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp cream of tartar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 Tbsp crushed candy canes
  • 2 tsp oil
  1. Preheat oven to 275ºF. Line two baking sheets with parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add salt and cream of tartar and continue beating until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue beating until mixture is glossy and stiff, about 2 minutes. Fold in 1 cup chocolate chips and crushed candy canes.
  3. Drop teaspoon-sized dollops about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets. Bake until cookies begin to crack and are light golden, about 25 minutes. Cool completely.
  4. Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips and oil in a bowl. Dip half the meringue cookie and place on wax paper until chocolate is set.
