I made one batch of these and they were flat as pancakes but that was totally my fault. They tasted good so I read a little tutorial on whipping egg whites and made a second batch that came out great. The first time I used cold egg whites wasn't that careful about separating and started on high speed which I know now is all wrong. Thanks for a great recipe and a good learning experience. Read More

Sorry, but I must give this one only 2 stars. There are too many tips/steps missing. I am so glad I read the other reviews before I started to make these. I did the overnight method. I pre-heated the oven to 350F, put the cookies in, turned the oven off after 1-2 minutes and left them in overnight. So easy. Read More

After I'd read others' reviews, I used 2 Tbsp cocoa and only 1/2 cup sugar in my cookies; choc chips were omitted. Just the right sweetness and chocolatey-ness for me. On top of that, I didn't follow the instructions verbatim. I adapted instructions from other meringue cookie recipes to suit this recipe instead. First, beat in cream of tartar and vanilla when the egg whites become foamy; continue whipping till soft peaks form. When soft peaks form, gradually beat in sugar (a little at a time) to egg whites till they form stiff peaks and look glossy. I folded in cocoa lastly--don't overfold the mixture. Since this was my first attempt at making meringue, I was slightly worried. I wondered whether combining vanilla and cream of tartar with egg whites first will actually prevent the the egg whites from "growing" in volume. Separate the egg whites from the yolks right after the eggs are out of refrigerator. Then, wait to start baking when the egg whites get to room temperature. Also, make sure you use only grease-free metal or glass mixing bowl and beeaters for whipping egg whites. Finally, these cookies took longer to get done (for me), about 35~40 minutes; they're done when the tops of the cookies are kind of hard. I got about 36~40 of them with a teaspoonfuls for each. Overall, this is a wonderful choc meringue drop recipe--definitely a keeper! The best part is they're lower in calories than other cookies! Read More

I doubled the cocoa in this recipe and it came out fine. I also substituted chopped pecans for the chocolate chips. Make sure they are completely cool before storing in an airtight container. The slightest bit of dampness will turn these to chocolate marshmallows. Delicious right out of the oven! Read More

Great recipe. These turned out wonderfully and were very quick and easy. I did make a few changes to suit my personal taste. I also read the article concerning making meringue. I used only 1/2 cup of sugar and increased chocolate chips to 1/2. I baked them at 275 because my oven tends to run hot. I did have to "assist" the cookies off the cookie sheet. I expected this due to the sticky nature of meringue and found that it was no problem but may try parchment paper next time. Read More

MMMMMMMM!!!!! I'm not usually a meringue fan but these are awesome!! Easy to!! I didn't change a thing. For those having trouble with the egg whites maybe you're just not beating them long enough. It takes at least five minutes. I baked for the full 30 minutes. A must try. Thanks. Read More

These were awesome. I think they'd be just as good without the chocolate chips. I had to look up how to get your egg whites whipped into perfect peaks: Make sure your eggs are room temp and add a pinch of salt to the whites before beating. Start off mixing them at medium low speed and then halfway through add the cream of tartar. Next increase the speed and mix to stiff peaks. Careful not to over mix or it will destabilize. Read More
