Chocolate Swirl Meringue Cookies have only 5 ingredients and are a decadent alternative to a traditional cookie and I will say perhaps even easier to make – oh yeah, whip it good! (the ’80’s anyone?) Be sure to check out the other #FoodieMamas Chocolate recipes in the roundup below!
It’s going to be really, really cold this weekend in NJ, so I hear on my weather app, like, -8 cold, yikes!!! I say let’s deal with that weather situation by enjoying something sweet, something that makes me super happy: CHOCOLATE! It is after all, my candy of choice. Chocolate certainly makes my lack of cold-weather conditioning less of a worry 😉

Taking a bite of these Chocolate Swirl Meringue Cookies is like taking a bite of a marshmallow that is crisp on the outside and soft and chocolate-y on the inside. I highly recommend dipping these lovelies into the leftover melted chocolate – that is if there is any! Perhaps served warm with fresh berries, ice cream, whipped cream – you name it 🙂 Oh, I have some ideas, people!
I will add that these go amazingly with a fresh, hot cup of coffee. That is key, we want our coffee fresh and hot and right away in morning. I usually drink my coffee with half and half but with these, it’s good black without anything in it. You could also do milk, like I did as well for this photo shoot – just look at those cute heart straws! When I saw those, I was like, ‘I know who’s “co-starring” with the Chocolate Swirl Meringue Cookies!’ Here’s looking at you Valentine’s Day! ♥
I envision a couple, out there somewhere, enjoying these Chocolate Swirl Meringue Cookies over a candlelight table after dinner, with candles purchased handmade from Etsy perhaps, sipping whole organic milk from these paper heart straws same mason jar, staring into each other’s eyes, and then recycling the paper straws after use…okay, you get the picture…that would be a nice Valentine’s Day 🙂
- I added the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer that I use in making this recipe to my Amazon aStore under the “Small Kitchen Appliances” section. It has served me very well in many of my recipes and whips up an excellent meringue.
This recipe makes 9 cookies, the perfect amount to make for sitting and binge watching your favorite Netflix show (⇐not kidding)…And maybe have some to share with the family 😉 Like, of course, SHARE these with your loved ones!

Below is a collage of the process of making Chocolate Swirl Meringue Cookies start to finish 🙂
- 3 large egg whites (tip: it is easier to separate the eggs when they are cold)
- ¾ sugar (caster sugar or confectioner's sugar, so the mixture isn't gritty)
- ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Line 1 baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Tip: make sure that your mixing bowl is totally clean, any bit of grease or egg yolk and the meringue will not whip. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, whip egg whites on high until foamy. Sprinkle in cream of tartar and continue whipping on high until soft peaks. Gradually, add in sugar and the vanilla extract. Whip until stiff peaks form.
- Melt chocolate morsels in microwave, 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until melted.
- Drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the meringue - do not mix in! - using 2 large spoons, spoon out meringue (I usually get 9 cookies on 1 sheet). This is where the artistry comes in, you don't want over mix the chocolate-meringue mixture so you get those nice swirls! Bake for 40-50 mins in oven until the cookies come off the parchement easily. 40 mins usually works best for me. Enjoy!
