Chocolate Meringue Stars

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

These are easy and attractive cookies. They are light and chewy and you can't eat just one. I usually make them at Christmas, but they will do for any occasion.

It is true that you can not just eat one. I ended up making a double batch. I knew I wouldn't have time or patience for the glaze so I sprinkled them with chocolate sprinkles before I baked them. Looked pretty and tasted great.
