    Gorgeous!!! The perfect guilt free treat.  -  21 Jul 2008


    This is my first meringue attempt so I am not sure how it is supposed to taste. I doubled the recipe and I would make them again. I have been dieting and these are great for a nice chocolate treat.  -  21 Jul 2008


    These didn't turn out at all. The sugar quantity is way too low for meringues. They didn't rise and were awful. I think the quantities need to be checked.  -  21 Jun 2017
