DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat gas oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, gradually adding in the sugar while beating.
  • Add mint extract and food coloring.
  • Stir in the mini chocolate chips by hand.
  • Drop by teaspoonful onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
  • Set pans into oven and immediately turn off the heat and leave in the oven overnight (no peeking)- as the oven cools down, the cookies will cook.
  • OR set the pans in the preheated oven and immediately reduce the heat to 275 F and bake for 50 minutes.
  • Check 10 minutes early in case your oven runs hot- when done, they should be airy, light puffs that are very crisp and fragile on the exterior.
  • NOTE: This recipe really is meant for a gas oven;electric ovens don't cool down as quickly and may overcook your meringues so the overnight method isn't recommended.
  • Instead, if you have an electric oven, simply preheat your oven to 275F and cook for 40-50 minutes.
