help me use up 12 egg whites!
searching for ideas - want to use as many as possible in one recipe. I have a chocolate mousse recipe but only uses 2 for serving 4. I looked at Smitten Kitchen s'mores cake - but that only uses 4. Hoping you can help!
Peppermint Meringues - A Christmas treat in our household for some 40+ years.
8 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 cups sugar
2 cups (2 packages) semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
Beat egg whites until foamy, adding salt & cream of tarter.
Beat until they hold a peak.
Gradually add sugar, beating after each addition.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop (2 tablespoons) onto parchment paper.
Bake 300F about 25 minutes until slightly brown. Remove from paper after cooling and keep in tin box to keep them dry.
Makes about 6 dozen (recipe can be halved).
