These Triple Chocolate Meringue Cookies are dark, decadent, and bursting with flavour. A crispy chocolate meringue outside, a fudgy chocolate inside, and a delicious spattering of dark chocolate chips. This is the kind of cookie you make to celebrate, or to get that someone special to smile just a little wider than usual. And you know what else? There’s a gluten-free option too!
You may not know this about me, but the universe and I are actually quite close. In fact, the universe tells me some of her secrets. Some of her mysteries. Like the secret to happiness! Now, I wouldn’t be a good bestie to the universe if I just spilled her secrets all over my blog. The secret to eternal happiness is sadly off-limits.
I can however share this recipe for Triple Chocolate Meringue Cookies to make your life just that little bit sweeter. Besides, “most of life’s problems can be solved by a good cookie” – Ina Garten said so! (And in case you’re feeling a little more traditional, here’s a recipe for good ol’ fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies.)
Oh, and it has a gluten-free option too. And I’m going to quickly explain that to you here. You see, when I first planned this recipe I had intended to make it completely a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe. Alas, fate intervened and I ran out of cocoa powder. I substituted by adding in a ¼ cup of hot chocolate mix (specifically, Camino Original Dark Hot Chocolate mix).
And magic happened.
So, if you’d like this to be gluten-free, all you have to do is switch out the ¼ cup of hot chocolate mix for another ¼ cup of cocoa powder. Keep in mind though that hot chocolate mix includes sweetener, milk powder, and other things too; the texture and taste will likely come out a little different.
I was recently made aware that some brands of vanilla extract are not gluten-free. Just something to keep in mind if you’re going for a gluten-free recipe!
You may have noticed some swanky looking earphones in the post photos. They’re called the Vasa Blå. The good people at Sudio sent me over a pair to check out, and they’re pretty nifty. They’re wireless – perfect for my random 10-minute dance-in-the-kitchen parties. And in case you’re interested in getting a pair, use the gift code chocolatesandchai, and you’ll get a 15% discount.
