How to Make Chocolate-Chip Meringues
A friend hooked me up with some cream of tartar, but I’m not sure what local ingredient would be a good substitute, to give these meringues their body. Leave a comment if you have any ideas!
Also, note the cooking temp: 300.
4 egg whites (NO yolk allowed)
½ tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp vanilla
1 ½ c sugar
12 oz chocolate chips (or chopped semi-sweet chocolate)
Dash of salt
(Preheat oven to 300)
1) Beat egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla until soft peaks form.
2) Add sugar gradually, beating until peaks are stiff.
3) Fold in chocolate chips.
4) Drop teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet.
5) Bake at 300 for about 25 minutes.
