Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 12-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • sugar sprinkles for decoration (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees
  • Add the egg whites, cream of tartar and sea salt to a large mixing bowl, and beat with a mixer until foamy and thick 
  • Gradually add the sugar, and beat until very stiff. Stiff peaks should form when you dip the beaters in and out of the mixture, and they should stay stiff
  • Slowly fold the chocolate chips into the meringue, using a spatula
  • Use a tablespoon to drop mixture onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets
  • Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until cookies are firm to the touch and dry and lift easily off the cookie sheets
  • Turn oven off and allow cookies to cool gradually in oven for 30 minutes
  • Store in an airtight container
