Cakery Friday: Mocha Chocolate Chip Meringues

I love to make meringues. They are not too difficult to make, they taste delicious AND they could fall into the semi-healthy dessert range {a stretch, I know}. Also, they are the perfect dessert to make with leftover egg whites and after all of the cakes I have made this week….. I have SO many egg whites {pictures to follow soon}!

These meringues get kicked up a notch with cocoa powder, espresso powder and chocolate chips. These were a gift to our dear friend Barbra for her birthday. I hope they helped to sweeten your day too!

Gather all of the ingredients.

In the bowl of your electric mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, beat together 3 egg whites with 1/4 teaspoon of salt until frothy. Continue beating and gradually add in 3/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cornstarch, one tablespoon at a time. Beat until stiff, glossy peaks form {approximately 6 minutes}.

Fold in 1 tablespoon of espresso powder and 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder, mix until just incorporated. Finally, fold in 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips.

Drop or spoon batter onto baking sheets that have been fitted with a Silpat mat or parchment paper. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 40 minutes, rotate the pans after the first 20 minutes. The cookies will be slightly cracked on the top.
