I like recipes that are a bit weird — and this one definitely falls into that category. What, no actual baking in a heated oven? Even so, these are a delicious, frothy-tasting treat.
Ingredients: 2 pasteurized egg whites; 1/4 teaspoon salt; 3/4 cup sugar; 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat egg whites and salt until stiff. Slowly add sugar, then fold in chips. Drop by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet. Then, turn oven off and place the cookie sheet in the oven. Let the sheet sit in the oven for at least four hours undisturbed.
I’ve made these using food coloring, butterscotch chips, and in other variations. Each time, they have been very good — and each time Kish says I could easily make them without anything but the meringue.
