Chocolate Meringue Cookies

So I decided to experiment with meringues last night! I have always thought they were so classy and Southern. I'd never tried to make them before and decided to experiment with my own recipe. Here it is:


4 egg whites
1 cup of Castor sugar ( I made my own out of regular sugar like this!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsps cocoa powder
a few pinches of corn starch

How to make my chocolate meringues:
 Preheat oven to 200 degrees F and line two cookie sheets with wax paper
1. Separate your egg whites into a very clean and dry glass bowl.
2. Let eggs sit for about 30 minutes if you pulled them out of the fridge so that they can get to room temp.
3. Put your other ingredients together in a bowl (other than your vanilla)
4.Use a hand mixer and set it on medium speed and begin to whip your egg whites.
5. Once the egg whites become frothy add your vanilla.
6. After it starts getting a little thicker start adding your other mixture in about 1 TBS at a time until the mixture becomes stiff (when you pick the mixer out of the egg whites they should form stiff peaks.
7. Put the mixture in a pastry bag with a decorative tip on it or use a spoon and drop about a Tbs on the sheets about an inch apart.

Bake for an hour and a half.  Then turn oven off slightly open the oven door and let cookies cool down with the oven.

There you have it, my meringue cookies! You can add more chocolate or less. It all depends on what you want! Next time I'm thinking of adding coffee!

P.S. Another great thing about these cookies is that they're only around 35 calories for one cookie and very low in fat!!
