Minty Meringue Drops Recipe

These pretty mint green drops are dotted with chocolate chips. My kids don't consider it the Christmas season until I make them.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min./batch YIELD:15 servings


  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 to 6 drops green food coloring, optional
  • 1 package (10 ounces) mint chocolate chips


  • 1. Lightly grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar, beating until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form. Beat in vanilla and food coloring if desired. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • 3. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake at 250° for 30-35 minutes or until dry to the touch. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: If mint chocolate chips are not available, place 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips and 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract in a plastic bag; seal and toss to coat. Allow chips to stand for 24-48 hours.
