I have tried many meringue cookie recipes, usually the "forgotten" recepies, and this is the best. As with any meringue, the key is to let it sit and cool before moving or eating. When I made this recipe, I did snitch one after it had cooled in the oven - it was not yet completely cold - and it did scrunch into a chewy, delicious chunk of sugar. Better to wait until VERY cool. I don't always coat with the chocolate, but I do like the way the chopped chocolate is distributed througout the cookie. I find that it doesn't flatten out as in the picture unless you make it that shape when you drop the cookies on the sheet. Very special.

These meringue cookies are the best!! I made these for my husband and I and we cannot tell that they are low in calories. Will definately make again!
