  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.
  2. Blend egg whites and salt with an electric mixer until peaks begin to form. With the mixer still running, gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until all is incorporated, then add the cream of tartar.
  3. Gently fold in chocolate chips using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Using a teaspoon, drop batter onto prepared cookie sheet. Place in the oven, and turn off heat. Leave in the oven at least 4 hours, or overnight for even better results.

i hsve used a similar recipe for many years at christmas time to make christmas balls. it is a great treat for people who can not eat alot of sugar. if you leave chips out and color half of mixture with green and red food coloring, then using ice cream scoop dip out on parchment paper and cook as instructed it is fun. you can add sprinkles and other decorations.

I baked the cookies at 350 like the recipe stated - after 1 hour they were burned. I cannot imagine what they would look like after 4 hours. These cookies need to be baked at 200 degrees or less.

I have made this recipe for over 30 years for my kids and the whole family loves them. I would also tint the candies green eith a little peppermint oil dor St. Pat's day and for Christmas and also for Christmas, tint them pink with cherry extract. Yummy!!!

The recipe came out fine but it was too sweet for me so next time I'll reduce the amount of sugar used.

My oven's tempurature settings are a bit finicky and I think that came into play here. The cookies didn't quite puff up like they are supposed to, but they still tasted great. Very easy recipe (and almost always follows a dinner where I am using hollandaise sauce).

This is an interesting cookie to include in my Christmas Cookie tins. I like it because it's different and I got a lot of compliments on it. Next time I will tint the mixture for the holidays - oh, and I like the idea of using them as ghosts for halloween and just using the mini chips for eyes. I left them in the oven overnight and they really did turn out perfect.

Easy and really good. Hey, Chris, you turn the oven off!!! I left them overnight and they were perfect!

This was the first meringue recipe I ever tried, and once my dad reminded me after my first attempt that you are supposed to use room-temperature eggs it turned out great! But as someone mentioned, I think it is a little too sweet. I think either removing some of the sugar or the chocolate chips would make it better.
