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.
