Mint Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Meringue cookies have always fascinated me. They are crunchy on the outside and light and airy on the inside.

Many people are intimidated by meringue cookies, but they are really very easy to make, they just take a little time.

We love this mint version of meringue cookies. I used a little green food coloring in mine, but you could easily do a little red, or make a batch of both for a really fun plate of  holiday cookies.

Lynn's Kitchen Adventures


  1. I’ve never made meringue cookies before, but this is a recipe I am going to have to try! Looks delicious!

  2. These rank in my top 4 cookies! I just made some last week. LOVE THEM!

  3. They look so festive! I love making meringue cookies, plain, with cocoa, and with chocolate chips. The last mint extract I bought tasted hideous though (perhaps artificial). Do you have a particular brand you recommend?

  4. Lynn,
    this post got me to thinking about my recently failed angel food cake. Have you any tips to give me in my next attempt? I love baking just as you do so I’m hoping you’ll be able to help me. I really want to get this cake right.

    • I need to do a whole post on whipping egg whites/making meringue. My number one tip though is room temperature eggs. It makes a big difference in how the eggs whip. If they are cold, I find that they whites do not whip as well.

  5. Lynn, those cookies are SO PRETTY! 🙂

  6. I’ve never made or had them before. Are they like Macarons (not Macaroons) in texture and taste or are they different?

  7. I have made meringue cookies before and love them! This is a great option to try. Thank you.

  8. Yumm! These are definitely on my Christmas baking list. Love chocolate and mint together! Is the cream of tartar a must? Is there a substitute for that? For some reason I just never have that on hand but if needed I’ll buy it for this recipe. Thanks!

  9. I have never made this type of cookie before, I am excited to try them! Thanks for a great idea! 🙂

  10. Best cookies ever!!!! Check out my recipe blog! Im new at it but my recipes are good!

  11. Nothing like a FAT FREE, GLUTEN FREE, CORN FREE cookie!!!
    I like to freeze them and eat them frozen.
