Chocolate Cherry Meringues Recipe

For Valentines day I wanted to make something special for the boys. One of our very favorite cookies are meringues. For Christmas I often make them peppermint flavored and mocha flavored, but for Valentines Day I wanted to make sure they were extra special. So along with the Valentines Day Gelees I made, I decided to make this Chocolate Cherry Meringues recipe. The ingredients are simple, egg whites, sugar, chocolate and cherries, but the results are heavenly. For Valentines Day I opted to make them heart shaped but you could choose to pipe them or simply allow them to be little white clouds. Whatever you do, make sure you make this Chocolate Cherry Meringues Recipe.
