Chocolate Chip Kisses
Great at Christmas - add 2 or 3 drops of red or green food coloring!
- 2 egg whites
- 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 C superfine sugar (or powdered sugar)
- 1/2 C chocolate pieces
- 1/4 C chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 300. Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt together in a small bowl until soft peaks form. Add vanilla. Add sugar gradually, beating until stiff. Fold in chocolate pieces and nuts.
Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 in apart on ungreased brown wrapping paper laid on a cookie sheet. Bake in a 300 oven until dry, about 25 minutes.
Let cool slightly before removing from paper. Set on rack to cool completely before storing in airtight containers.
