This recipe for Christmas Meringue Kisses was one of the runners-up in our Christmas Cookies contest. These meringue kisses combine crushed peppermint candies and chocolate chips in a meringue base.

To give these Christmas Meringue Kisses an extra boost, we dipped the bottoms in melted chocolate, which hardened once cool.

Makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies

Try to work as quickly as possible when shaping the kisses; they will deflate if left too long before baking. These cookies will keep for at least a week if stored in an airtight container.
