One of my favorite flavor combinations ever: Chocolate Mint! Meringue cookies are so easy to make, and so versatile too!


  • 4 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 drop green food coloring, gel
  • 6 ounce dark chocolate wafers, melted


  1. In a clean, dry mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites for 30 seconds until frothy.
  2. Add in vinegar and cornstarch, whisk with electric mixer for 1 minute. While beating, slowly add the sugar in a steady stream. Add peppermint extract and food coloring.
  3. Beat for 4 minutes on high until stiff peaks form.
  4. Spoon into a large pastry bag with tip, pipe on parchment paper lined baking sheets.
  5. Bake in a 200 degree oven for 80 minutes. Turn oven off and allow meringues to set 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Once set, dip into melted chocolate and return to parchment paper to set. ENJOY.


  • Bake them at a low temperature for a long time. I usually do 200 degrees for 80 minutes.
  • Use parchment paper! Easy to clean up, and mine never get browned bottoms.
  • Once done baking, turn oven off and let them set in the oven for hours. I usually make them in the evening, then let them sit in the oven overnight.
  • Don't bake on a humid day. Don't store them when it's humid in your house.
  • Add your food coloring before beating to stiff peaks. It helps distribute it more evenly. I also find gel food coloring works better than liquid.
  • Use a pastry bag and tip for swirls and roses. Or use a spoon and drop by tablespoon onto parchment paper. You decide.
  • Use Ghirardelli melting wafers for dipping your meringues. It sets up quick and doesn't change the texture of your meringue.
