This recipe is different from many other meringue recipes because it calls for powdered egg whites rather than fresh. The nuts are optional. Adapted from "Wilton Celebrate."

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 275 F.
  2. Beat powdered egg whites with sugar, water and flavoring on high speed of an electric mixer for 4-5 minutes or until stiff peaks form.
  3. Gently hand stir in chocolate chips and nuts (if using).
  4. Drop Tbsps of batter onto parchment-lined cookie sheets and bake for 55-60 minutes or until lightly browned and dry.
  5. Do not overbake.
  6. These only keep a few days in a wax paper lined cookie tin, so don't make too far in advance.

I was a bit worried having read the review by Michelle, but these came out great. I mixed all the dry ingredients first (sugar, powdered whites, +Tbsp. Cocoa powder), then added 4 Tbsp warm water and hand mixed it for a couple minutes until the whites thickened up. I beat it on high speed for about 4-5 minutes, and though not as fluffy as normal egg whites would be, it was a great thick texture perfect for meringues. Thanks HeatherFeather for a great recipe!

I had high hopes for this recipe, but all I ended up doing was wasting a bunch of ingredients. Very disappointing. After following the recipe directions and letting my Kitchenaid whip the first mixture for 5 minutes, I had a soupy mess. Tried to rescue it by emptying and washing out the bowl, whipping 2 real egg whites, then slowly adding first mixture to it, but all it resulted in was just a bigger soupy mess.

I've had this recipe in my cookbook for months and finally got some powdered egg white. Turned out well, I only added 1/2 cup choc chips, and made exactly 24 meringues. I don't like to use egg yolks because of the cholesterol and this was a simple way of making them.
