Last week I made a banana cream pie for W and wanted to make meringues for myself. Meringues are a wonderful way to use up leftover egg whites. Several days prior I had received a recipe for chocolate-dipped espresso meringues from Real Simple. I had all of the ingredients on hand so it was easy to mix them together.
I opted not to dip mine in chocolate although I am sure that would be delicious. They were good just like this. Even my dad who is not a coffee fan said they were tasty. Just a note: do not try to make meringues on a rainy day. They will not turn out crispy.
