I love chocolate meringue cookies.. maybe even more than these CCC!
These Chocolate Meringue Cookies are super delicate with a thin crisp exterior and a soft moist interior. I can totally eat a handful at a time without feeling too guilty. The chocolate flavor is rich, and the nuttiness from the pecans compliments it just perfectly. A couple minutes is all you need to whip them together, and you can have cookies in no time.
I actually made something similar back in 2010 - link here.
