Christmas Meringue Kisses
Crushed peppermint candies add a holiday element to classic meringue cookies.
Why This Recipe Works
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. For the best-textured, lightest kisses, we beat the egg whites until just glossy and stiff. To give these Christmas Meringue Kisses an extra boost, we dipped the bottoms in melted chocolate, which hardened once cool.
