Magical Meringues

These meringues are so good, and I highly recommend them. This meringue recipe is from my grandmother, but I changed it a little. When pipping out the meringues, I wouldn’t use a tip for the pipping bag, because I found that the chocolate chips got stuck. This recipe makes about 2 dozen large meringues.


  • 2 egg whites
  • ⅛ teaspoon of salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ¾ a cup of sugar
  • ¾ a cup of mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Mix the egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla in a Kitchen Aid mixer and beat until mounds begin to form.
  • Slowly add in the sugar and beat until it is firm but still shiny. If the mixture has a curtled look, it’s over mixed and you will have to restart. 
  • Fill a pastry bag with the mixture and pipe onto the cookie sheets.
  • Bake the meringues for 25 minutes.
