Chocolate and Vanilla Meringue Cookies

Being healthy doesn’t HAVE to suck.

To all the girls who resist tasty temptations Monday-Thursday so they can binge eat/drink on the weekends…this one’s for you.

These are a great way to beat the evening cravings for ice cream, Oreos, Doritos dipped in queso, or whatever your vice may be. The only caloric ingredient in these is a cup of sugar but the recipe makes about 40 cookies.  So that’s like what..a teaspoon of sugar in each one..maybe less?  Make these on a Monday and fight your cravings all week!

Ingredients:

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 200F.  Line two baking sheets with foil.
  2. With a mixer, beat egg whites until frothy. Add in vinegar and continue beating until soft peaks form.
  3. Increase speed to high and gradually beat in sugar. Keep beating until it appears glossy.  Add in vanilla.
  4. Remove half of the meringue into another bowl. Stir in cocoa.
  5. Spoon both meringue mixes onto the lined foil, about a tablespoon per scoop.
  6. Bake for 3 hours, or until meringues are dry all the way through.  Turn off oven and leave meringues in for another hour.
  7. Eatttt! …and make sure you store in an airtight container.
