Chocolate Meringues

100% would make this recipe again!
Recipe Description
When my mom's friend Joan gave her this recipe, she assured her it would be easy. Maybe in Joan's family. Everyone in ours likes them a different way, from ooey gooey (that would be me!), to barely set (my brother, Gary), to crisp and well done (my husband, Barry, who faints at the sight of rare roast beef, so why should meringues be any different?). You'll never see place cards at Mom's table ("just sit where you want"), but only at Mom's are the meringues labeled!

Ingredients

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
2   egg whites
3/4 Cup(c)  walnuts, chopped
1/2 Cup(c)  sugar
1/8 Teaspoon(t)  distilled white vinegar
1   vegetable cooking spray, for the baking sheets
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  vanilla
1 Cup(c)  chocolate chips

Preparation

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler set over simmering water. Stir in the vanilla, and set it aside to cool. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease it. (If two baking sheets will fit side by side on your oven rack, use two.) Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on medium high speed until foamy, about 30 seconds. Add the vinegar and beat until soft peaks form. Add the sugar, a tablespoon at a time, beating for 10 seconds after each addition, until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes total. Gently fold in the melted chocolate, followed by the chopped walnuts. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of the batter, about 1 inch apart, on the prepared baking sheet (the batter will stiffen as it stands, but it's nothing to worry about). Bake on the center oven rack until the cookies are puffed, about l0 minutes for a gooey chocolate center, a minute or so longer for a crisper cookie. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet set on a wire rack until they can be safely moved, 1 to 2 minutes. Then transfer them to the rack to cool completely. Repeat, baking and cooling the remaining cookies. Once cooled, they are ready to serve.
