    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


    Nice taste and texture. Not sure why, but mine came out dark brown (even before baking), so you can definitely tell they're chocolate! - 08 Apr 2014
