Chocolate, Coconut, and Almond Snowdrops

Chocolate, Coconut, and Almond Snowdrops

Meringues are simple cookies to make, and the flavor varieties are numerous. This version has candy bar flavors--a crunchy combination of coconut, almonds, and chocolate. The recipe can be cut in half if you want a smaller yield. You can store the baked meringues in airtight containers at room temperature for up to one week.
