Day 3: Minty Meringue Drops

I have never attempted to make any sort of meringue before so I figured the Christmas season would be the perfect time. Thankfully they turned out- quite deliciously and has encouraged me to make more varieties soon

2 eggs whites

¼ tsp cream of tartar

¾ cup sugar

1/8 tsp. vanilla extract

1/8 tsp. peppermint extract

8 oz.  mini chocolate chips

2 oz. Andes peppermint chips


Lightly grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper and set aside. In a previously chilled bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar, beating until small peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tbs at a time until stiff peaks form. Beat in vanilla and peppermint. Fold in both forms of chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 in apart onto baking sheet. Bake at 300 for 30-35 minutes or until dry to the touch. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container.
