Toffee Meringue Drops Recipe

The original recipe called for mini chocolate chips and crushed peppermint candy. I didn't have those ingredients on hand so I substituted toffee bits. Everyone loved the tasty results!—Bette Richards, Caledonia, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + standing YIELD:36 servings


  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate English toffee bits
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans


  • 1. Preheat oven to 250°. In a large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved, about 6 minutes. Fold in toffee bits and pecans.
  • 2. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake 25-30 minutes or until set and dry. Turn oven off; leave cookies in oven 1 hour.
  • 3. Cool completely on pans on wire racks. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 3 dozen.

"They tasted very nice, however they were a bit chewy in the middle. The toffee and nuts add nice flavour to the cookies!"

"These are wonderful cookies and a great way to use up egg whites. They didn't last long!"

"These are fantastic. Like another poster, I used 1/2 mini chocolate chips and 1/2 toffee bits. I doubled the recipe and ended up with PERFECT meringues. They were much lighter than the ones pictured. I probably ended up with three dozen when I doubled it, so less than the recipe calls for. I used a small cookie scoop to drop them. Fantastic recipe."

"my cookies turned out tough and too chewy. I did use powdered egg mix so that might be the problem. Super easy to make, hope yours turn out better!"

"Good but only got 20 cookies, very crumbly so probably will not make again."

"I thought these were very good. I didn't have chocolate toffee bits, so I substituted 1/4 cup each of toffee bits and mini chocolate chips, which worked great."

"I love this recipe and I have been making them for years! Just love them! Can I use a 1/2 cup of Splenda in place of the sugar? Thanks!"

"I would like to try this recipe with the chocolate chips and peppermint candy. Would you use the same amount as the toffee bits (1/2 cup chips and/or candy)? Thank you!"

"A delightful variation of an old favourite. The nuts can be varied for different flavours."
