    3 hours 15 min

    1. Preheat oven to 120 C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment.
    2. In large metal or glass bowl, beat the egg whites on high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar while continuing to beat until they hold stiff peaks. Mix in the vanilla and cocoa on low speed, then fold in chocolate chips by hand. Drop small mounds of the mixture onto the prepared baking trays, spacing 2.5cm apart.
    3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Turn off oven, and leave the meringues in the oven for 2 more hours, or until centres are dry. Remove from tray and store in an airtight container.

    great recipe but did add 1 tsp of vinegar after stiff peak stage.  -  06 Aug 2011


    These are extremely simple to make, and I can also confirm that Splenda does work well if you’re looking for a healthy option. The trick to making these best is to keep the size small. The first batch I made the drops were about a table spoon in size and they got hollow with a gummy center. My second attempt I used almost level teaspoon size drops and they were truly amazing. When they come out bite sized they just melt in you mouth. I also agree that there is no need for more then 45 minutes of cool down time in the oven after cooking.  -  15 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Awesome! Can't believe these cookies are so low fat. I made 24 good size ones instead of 40 small drops. They were amazing! Will make again for sure 'cause I'm addicted...For weight watchers people, the whole recipe is only 12.5 pts and they are so sweet that you can even make it without chocolate chips and that would be only 8.5 pts total!!!  -  17 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
