Chocolate Cookies Desserts

Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies

Chocolate Meringues_1 on Whisk TogetheRecipe:  These cookies are great for chocolate lovers trying to reduce calories.  I also have a version for us non-chocolate people using maple instead of chocolate.  SWEET!  Or, you could omit the cocoa powder and just have mini chocolate chips.

Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies
30 cookies

1/2 cup egg whites at room temperature (about 4 large eggs)
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tb. cocoa powder
1 cup mini chocolate chips or regular size

1.  Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
2.  With a whisk attachment if possible, whip the egg whites and cream of tartar until frothy.
3.  Gradually add the sugar and whip on medium-high until stiff.  You will see a difference and the batter will start to look glossy as well.
4.  Mix in the vanilla and cocoa.
5.  Remove the beaters and gently fold in the chocolate chips.
6.  Place on parchment or silicone lined cookie sheets.  I just used a regular spoon and it was about a large tablespoon full of batter.  To make them look pretty and/or serve them to a gathering, put the batter into a large pastry bag with a 1M tip.  You will get pretty cookies that way.
7.  Bake for 35-40 minutes.
8.  Cool and eat!

Maple Meringues

2 large egg whites
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup + 1 Tb. maple sugar
more maple sugar for sprinkling

1.  Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
2.  Beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until foamy.
3.  Gradually, add the maple sugar.  Beat on medium high until stiff peaks form and the batter is glossy.
4.  Drop on lined cookie sheets.  Or, use a pastry bag with large tip.  Sprinkle with additional maple sugar.  Bake 2 hours.  Turn off oven and let bake for another 3 hours or overnight.
