Chocolate Dipped Meringues

4 egg whites, room temp
1 teaspoon cream of tartar 
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar (the recipe said to use superfine sugar but I couldn’t find that so I used regular sugar and it was fine)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix egg whites on medium until frothy. Add cream of tartar and mix until combined. Slowly add the sugar and vanilla while beating. Once all sugar is added, turn speed up to medium high and mix for about 6 minutes. The meringue will be firm and shiny and look like heaven!

If you have a pastry bag and tips you can make pretty little snowpeaks, but I don’t have that kind of fancy stuff so I put the meringue in a ziploc bag, cut a tip out of the bottom and squeezed it out into ugly snowpeaks while getting meringue EVERYWHERE. In my hair, all over my shirt, all over the counter. Actually, that’s what happens whenever I cook but meringue is a little stickier than most things.

Bake in a 225 degree oven for 1 hour and then turn off oven and leave them overnight.
