    These are really good! I could prepare them easily. They don't look very pretty (I just made drop cookies), but they taste great. I didn't have bittersweet chocolate, so I used 1 tblsp milk chocolate chips and 1/2 square unsweetened chocolate. Also, I was worried they would be too sweet so I only used 1/3 c. granulated sugar (and the 1/4 powdered sugar).

    These have an absolutely wonderful flavor. It was my first time making a meringue cookie and unfortunately the insides of the cookies fell, leaving a crisp outer shell with a large pocket of air inside. I'll probably try them again; maybe even alter the recipe to use as a meringue topping for a chocolate pudding pie. That would be tasty.

    These came out great! I will definitely make more batches for holiday gifts. I accidentally added the Cream of Tartar to the chocolate, cocoa, corn starch mix instead of the egg white mixture, and they still came out fine.

    This was my first time making meringues, but I'm very pleased with the way they came out. I followed the recipe as written, but only came out with about 24 medium-sized cookies. The flavor is nice and chocolatey and the hazelnuts provide crunch, but unfortunately you can't tast the nuts very much, so next time I'll probably add more. Otherwise, a good cookie for snacking on.

    I bet these taste great. But really, if you're making them for someone you love, pipe them like big candy kisses with a large round or star tip -- NOT the way they're shown in the photo. Anyone who owns a dog can tell you -- those don't say "I love you." More like, "Ewwww."
