Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • Green food coloring
  • Dash of salt
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Add egg whites to mixing bowl and allow to stand for 30 minutes to bring to room temperature.
  2. Add vanilla, mint, food coloring, and salt to egg whites and begin beating on medium speed until mixture is white and foamy.
  3. Gradually begin adding sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue mixing after each addition until sugar is fully dissolved.
  4. Continue beating until mixture is opaque, glossy, and is forming stiff peaks.
  5. Transfer meringue mixture to a pastry bag with tip attached (I used a 4B tip to make these)
  6. Pipe mixture to 1.5-2 inches in diameter on a parchment lined baking sheet. Be sure that meringues are about an inch apart because they do spread just a bit.
  7. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.
  8. Bake in a 200° oven for about 1 hour - 1 hour 20 minutes, until meringues are firm to the touch, but not yet browning.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Transfer to a dry, air-tight container and store at room temperature.
