Well, these fudgy meringue cookies are very fudgy and have a lot of chocolate flavor in them If you love chocolate, you will love these cookies. My group made it in class the other day and they were delicious but really rich. You can only eat so many of these. They were a bit dry, so we do suggest adding another egg white if you like them less dry.
These cookies are also low in fat due to no fat being used. The egg yolks are taken away from the egg whites, so, this is a fat free dessert (except for the chocolate chips).
I hope you guys enjoy these cookies. Be sure to have a glass of milk along with these!
