    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

    I made them a bit bigger, I think? But they were very morish to say the least, I cooked them for about 15 mins longer and turned the oven down a bit. Really lovely with choc chips in. Will make again  -  02 Dec 2015
