cream of tartar
semisweet chocolate chips
For a diet freindly version I used Splenda instead of sugar, left out the chocolate and added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts....taste great, less guilt! Thank you for sharing!
I followed the recipe perfectly but these came out of the oven looking very much like when they went in. They were white and shiny with a very chewy texture and I didn't care for the taste. I put them back in the oven at 350F for 15-20 minutes and they came out much better - dry and crisp on the outside with a little bit of a chewy center. I liked them much better that way. Also, I used grated chocolate instead of chocolate chips.
I think this recipe is really great because it doesn't require very many ingredients and most of which can be found even in a poorly stocked kitchen. The recipe makes plenty so you can share with friends. I brought them to school and everyone went crazy over them. They've got the tempting looks, the chewiness of chewing gum and the taste of marshmallows and chocholate. Plus it melts in your mouth like cotton candy. It was quick cooking since prep time was low. Such a great taste is worth the overnight wait.
Easy and fabulous. I used 2 tips I found in a review here: I used a piping bag to put the meringues on the baking sheet, and I put them in the turned-off 350 degree for a half-hour and then baked them at 200 degrees for about 45 minutes. Everyone loved the s'mores taste. Perfect!
after a frustrating flavorless and unattractive batch of meringue from a martha stewart magazine - i turned to all recipes (when am i gonna learn to just come here first - i always do that!) and found this recipe for meringue - i made some without chocolate chips and some with - they are fabulous - texture is great - tomorrow i will add small amounts of chopped chocolate and toasted pecans - thanks!!
These are easy and tasty! I made a double batch the first time and it filled 4 cookie sheets and a pizza pan! I used half vanilla and half almond extract, crushed the chocolate chips and cooked them in the turned off 350 oven for 30 mins, then at 200 for 45 mins - they turned out crunchy all the way thru. Next time I will cook them as directed because I'd prefer them a little chewy in the middle.
This was really good! They were gone fast! I did not use chocolate chips, and I replaced the vanilla with honey. Everything else was kept the same.
I've heard of pie meringues using cream of tartar, but never have used it for just simple meringues. It's unnecessary as long as you have your sugar to egg white ratio correct, add the sugar slowly, and beat the whites to stiff peaks.
