Tips for Success

To achieve the best results with our Cocoa Meringue Cookies recipe, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Ensure that your mixing bowl and beaters are completely clean and free from any grease or residue.
  • Room temperature egg whites are easier to beat to the desired consistency.
  • Gradually add the sugar to the egg whites to achieve the perfect meringue texture.
  • For added indulgence, consider folding in additional mix-ins such as crushed peppermint candies or toasted almonds.
