Definitely do NOT make these on a hot, humid day, or a rainy day, as it may affect the outcome a lot.
You can add more or less of the (solid) chocolate, to your own taste.

How to Make Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Line cookie sheet with foil. NO grease...


    In a medium bowl beat egg whites and cream of tartar with an electric mixer at medium speed until mixture thickens. Increase speed to high, while adding sugar slowly. Beat until mixture forms stiff peaks and turns glossy.
    Gently fold in cocoa mixture and chopped chocolate with a rubber spatula. Fold ingredients into egg whites until mixture is uniformly brown with no streaks.
    Fill a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip with the meringue. Pipe meringue in decorative shapes onto foil-lined baking sheets.
    Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
    Allow meringues to dry at room temperature for about 45 minutes or until not sticky. (Don't try making these
    on humid or rainy days.)
    Bake for 1 hour. When cool, remove from foil with a metal spatula.
