Looking for an easy meringue cookies recipe that’s melt in your mouth good? You’re going to love these Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies!
I wish I could take all the credit for these easy meringue cookies but this is actually a very special recipe! These chocolate chip meringue cookies bring back memories from when I had just begun teaching (we won’t talk about just how long ago that was!).
I taught Kindergarten for 14 years and I loved those little cuties! When you’re a teacher, there are some students you’ll always remember too. Some stick in my memory because they had me counting the days until summer break (and that was in September), but others I remember because I would have totally taken them home and adopted them as my own.
One of these was an adorable little girl named Brooke. I actually remember that whole class as being amazing that year but Brooke was one of those I would have adopted in a heartbeat. She was just so stinkin’ cute and super sweet on top of that.
Her mom, Dawn, was just as sweet and they used to surprise me with treats from time to time. One of my favorites were these little chocolate chip meringue cookies that are so good they just melt in your mouth. It was always impossible to eat just one!
I was thinking about these meringue cookies recently and crossed my fingers that Dawn still had the recipe. She did and lucky for me, she was more than willing to share! It turns out that it’s a family recipe her mother had passed down to her, so I actually have Terri Lowder to thank for these yummy cookies.
Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies
You can see from the video that these are super easy meringue cookies! The great thing about this recipe is that it only takes six ingredients and you probably have all of them in your pantry right now. The only thing I didn’t have was the brown paper bag to cook them on. I used a decorating bag with an icing tip to get this swirly look but you just as easily drop them onto the paper by the spoonful.
Since it just happened to be teacher appreciation week, it seemed fitting to have my daughters bring some cookies to school for their teachers. (Plus it kept me from eating them all!)
The recipe called for regular sized chocolate chips but I used mini chocolate chips instead. I thought they were the perfect size but you can use the bigger ones too.
