For best results, prepare meringues on a cool dry day. High humidity can result in chewy sticky meringues.
The beaters and mixing bowls must be totally fat free or the eggs will not whip up well.
Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla to the beaten egg whites along with the chopped chocolate.
For best results, separate the eggs, 1 at a time, into the bowls to make sure no egg yolks or shells are present. If a small piece of shell falls into the egg whites in the bowl, use a clean spoon, not your fingers, to remove the shell from the bowl.
Grate the chocolate instead of chopping it.
If using a copper bowl to beat the eggs, omit the vinegar.
Light and airy chocolate meringues are the perfect cookie to fit into your balanced eating plan.
