How do you make meringues even better? You add chocolate, of course. These crispy, light-as-air meringues have melted chocolate swirled into the batter. Sweet and sugary, they're melt-in-your-mouth good and so easy to make. If you've never worked with aquafaba before, these are a must-try.

Ingredients

  • Aquafaba (liquid from a 15.5-ounce can of chickpeas)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Drain the liquid from the chickpeas into the bowl of your mixer (reserve the chickpeas for another use). Using the whisk attachment, beat at high speed for 5 minutes. Gradually add the sugar, followed by the cream of tartar and vanilla. Continue beating until stiff peaks form, about 3-5 more minutes. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the top and use a large spoon to make a few swoops through the meringue (don’t overdo it).
  3. Scoop the meringue in spoonfuls onto your prepared baking sheets and bake, switching the pans about halfway through, for 2-3 hours, or until completely dry to the touch. Turn oven off, open the door slightly, and leave trays in for another hour.
  4. When cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature. Meringues will start to lose their crispness in a few days, depending on the humidity.
