Ben and I share a love for chocolate and mint. We have a favorite recipe that totally melts in your mouth!
4 egg whites
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon mint extract
1 cup chocolate chips (or chocolate mint chips if available)
green food coloring
Preheat oven to 35o degrees.
Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add sugar and salt a little at a time, dissolving completely. Beat until fairly stiff peaks form.
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. If you want them to look a little fancier, put the mixture into a plastic food storage bag, and close. Cut off a corner and use as a decorator tip.
