Hands On Time:
5 mins
Total Time:
2 hrs 5 mins


  • 3 large egg whites

  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar

  • ½ cup sugar

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Heat oven to 225° F.

  2. With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar on medium until foamy. Increase speed to high and gradually add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue to beat until stiff and glossy, 2 to 3 minutes. Fold in the chocolate chips.

  3. Drop mounds of the meringue mixture (each equal to 2 tablespoons) onto parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart. Bake until firm and dry, 75 to 90 minutes. Cool completely on the baking sheets.
