These chewy chocolate meringues are truly a delight. They’re a delight to make, coming together quickly with just 4 ingredients. And they’re a delight to eat, with a soft chewy center surrounded by a crisp exterior, and a nice chocolate flavor.
They’re also a delight for the waste line. Meringues are wonderful that way, a naturally fat-free treat. The chopped chocolate does prevent this variation from being completely fat-free, but you should still be able to enjoy a few without any guilt.
And a treat without guilt? Now that’s right up my alley.
I constantly have a tupperware in the fridge filled with egg whites. As soon as I think up ways to use them, the tupperware gets filled up again thanks to things like ice cream and lemon curd. Meringues are a perfect and simple solution.
These days I don’t have much time to fuss with a recipe before I have to stop and put my feet up (I could really do without pregnancy induced water retention. Hello, cankles!), so this dessert is perfect for me. You’ve likely got a lot going on in your life too—who doesn’t?— so I know you’ll love it too.
The recipe makes more than enough to share, so plan ahead. Indulging in too many at once can result in a tummy ache, trust me on that one.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
