It happened to be another one of those “chocolate craving” kind of nights so I whipped up (quite literally) a batch of these chocolate chip meringues. Crisp on the outer shell, chewy with bits of melted chocolate on the inside and hardly any calories so you can eat a boat load! And don’t be intimidated by these fluffy little treats…they require little prep work, few ingredients and the result is quite impressive!
