Chocolate Coconut Meringue Cookie Recipe

Working on the assumption that almost everything tastes better with chocolate, I decided to add chocolate chips to my Meringue Cookies this year. I like to make Meringues, because they are so simple and involve so few ingredients, and they melt in your mouth when you eat them.  They are also about as low calorie as you can get for Christmas cookies. The only drawback is my recipe calls for cream of tartar, which I only use a few times a year. So I usually have to ransack the pantry to find it, because it has invariably ended up all the way in the back underneath something.

I liked the addition of the chocolate chips, and I also added green food coloring to half the cookies for a little variety.  Next time I think I will add diced almonds too, and have Mounds Bar Meringues.

  1. We always put chocolate chips in ours, my fave. But we have never added coconut!! I might have to try that. It is also fun to add crushed peppermints for a festive minty flair!
