Mm.. best combination ev0r, chocolate mint!

When these came out of the oven, they definitely looked very different from my first two meringue attempts. Yes I still haven’t managed to get them to be round and cute and all.. but these tasted amaazing!!! (Well they will, if you like mint.) 

Basically, I followed the recipe in the last entry but instead of 1 teaspoon of vanilla, in went 2 teaspoons of peppermint extract (you may want to use less, depending on how good your extract is. Mine ain’t that happening, neither is my vanilla, which I always add extra of). Or you can just add it till the mixture tastes minty enough for your tastes. 

I also decreased the mini chocolate chips to about 3/4 cup, and kept the cocoa powder. 

Result: Chocolatey AND minty meringues! *hearts* 

And this was the main reason why I needed to make these meringues… 

 

More more more!

More more more!

My favourite green tea sweets used up several egg yolks and I needed a quick recipe to balance out the whites. So.. hence, the meringues. No regrets making them though because they turned out totally delish!
