Chocolate Chip Meringues

This recipe comes from my mom and is delicious!  If you are unfamiliar with meringues, they are light and fluffy cookies that have the same sensation as cotton candy.  They sort of dissolve and melt in your mouth.  YUM!

Makes about 30 cookies

6 large egg whites
1 1/4 Cup sugar
6 Cups (one 12oz bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cocoa powder, for dusting

To make:

Preheat oven to 175.  Line two baking sheets with wax paper.  Using mixer, mix egg whites on medium speed.  Continue mixing while adding in sugar one spoonful at a time.  Whisk until the egg whites form soft peaks (stand up).  The mixture should become foamy and firm, not runny. 

Fold in chocolate chips.  Spoon mixute onto cookie sheets into small amounts about 1 inch apart.  Bake until completely dry to touch (3 hours).  Let cool, and dust with cocoa powder.  Store in airtight container.
