Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Meringues-the lightness of a Meringue with just the hint of peppermint complemented with a light dip in chocolate.
This time of year, I always find myself with extra egg whites in the refrigerator.
I could make an egg white omelet with them but, um, no, not gonna happen. I don’t get omelets that often and if I’m gonna have one, I want the whole package. The whole egg, the gooey cheese, some bacon, mushrooms…and anything else I might find in the refrigerator to throw in there.
I could make a white cake I suppose but really, I don’t need a white cake right now. Although a white cake decorated all pretty for the season might be nice.
Maybe with the next egg whites.
No, when I have extra egg whites, I almost always make Meringues with them.
Meringues are my guilt free cookie. Fat free. Light Airy, satisfying. I’ve heard some people go so far as to call then “healthy.” Now, I’m not calling them that but, yeah, this is probably about as “healthy” a cookie as you’ll ever see from me.
My family loved the minty chocolate combination of these. My youngest tried to keep them all for herself.
