Eggology Egg White Recipe of the Day: Starbucks Chocolate Meringue Drops

Eggology egg whites were featured in a recipe on an interesting blog. It's all about "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes" and features supposedly top secret recipes from lots of famous restaurants and stores. We can't vouch for whether or not this is the actual recipe that Starbucks uses for their chocolate meringue drops, but we like that they suggest using Eggology egg whites to make them! Eggology egg whites are naturally sweetened and would enhance any meringue recipe - top secret or not!

CHOCOLATE MERINGUE DROPS (supposedly Starbucks recipe)

1/3 cup egg whites = (or 1/3 cup Eggology liquid egg whites)
1/2 cup white sugar
6 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips - (3/4 cup)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup chopped walnuts - (generous)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place rack in lower third of oven.

Cover two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a small metal bowl, beat egg whites, adding sugar slowly, until the whites are stiff but not dry. Using a rubber spatula, carefully stir in melted chocolate, vanilla, almond extract and chopped nuts into egg whites.

Drop spoonfuls of batter -- about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons -- onto the parchment lined baking sheets.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until tops are completely dry. Do not overbake. Cool completely in pan before removing with a spatula.
This recipe yields 12 to 18 cookies.
