Chocolate Meringue Cookies


I am a follower of the Weight Watcher program and am learning to cook in a more healthy way.  I made these Chocolate Meringue Cookies today as they are a low point food, high in protein and low in sugar.  This batch made 30+ cookies with only 1/2 cup of sugar!

The cookies turn out with a melt in your mouth texture.  I tried one after it cooled from baking and it was chocolatey good.  I hear they become more chewy after a day or two and some prefer that taste.

Servings: 30 • Serving Size: 1 cookie Old Points: 1 pt Points+: 1 pt
Calories: 53.7 • Fat: 2.2 g Carb: 8.4 g Fiber: 1.7 g Protein: 1.1 g 

  • 6 egg whites (room temperature)
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup Godiva dark chocolate chips, chopped.
Heat oven to 300°F. Cover cookie sheet with parchment.

Using a mixer, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar together in large bowl at high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar a little at a time, then vanilla, beating well after each addition until you get stiff peaks, the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is glossy.

Sift cocoa onto egg white mixture; gently fold until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop mixture by tablespoons onto cookie sheet. Makes 30 + cookies.

Bake 35 to 45 minutes or just until dry. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely on wire rack. Store covered, at room temperature.


  1. I am trying to find more low fat and sugar desserts. I have such a sweet tooth and it's catching up with me :) These look delicious. I love your canisters! Where did you get those?

  2. Oh Teri, thank you so much for sharing this receipe I think I may try them this week as we have a Blizzard heading my way and what else better to do then to bake goodies for the family. Thanks again for sharing my friend.

    God bless you and yours.

  3. A neighbor made these and took them to my friend's house who just lost her husband. I had one on Friday and LOVED it and hoped to somehow find out how to make them. So...you can imagine how happy I am to find the recipe here. Thank you sweet friend! I'll definitely make these when my Mom and aunt come soon. I don't dare make them until I have someone else to help me. (George isn't a big chocolate lover...silly man)
