Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 14 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 12 cup sugar substitute
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, lumps removed
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • light whipped topping, such as Cool Whip (1 tablespoon per sandwich)


  1. Tip: Make sure your bowl is completely dry and clean of grease or the whites will not whip up enough.
  2. Preheat oven to 250°F
  3. Place egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean bowl or electric mixer fitted with whisk attachment. Whisk at highest speed until whites form soft peaks that hold their shape when you lift the whisk.

  5. Whisk in cocoa and vanilla until blended.

  7. Fit a large star nozzle into a pastry bag. Fill pastry bag with meringue.
  8. Pipe 20 meringue kisses onto prepared sheets.

  10. Turn oven off, let cookies cool in oven for 30 minutes.
  11. Remove from baking sheet.
  12. Sandwich pairs of cooled cookies together with whipped topping.
