Mocha Chocolate Chip Meringues



I’ve made these cookies twice this week! My family loves them! My only problem is mine aren’t baking up in little puffs. They spread out a bit and flatten. They are still delicious and obviously they are being eaten quickly. I’m just wondering what I’m doing wrong. Any thoughts?

Ingredients:

2 egg whites, at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon hot water
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

Separate 2 eggs and set aside the yolks for another use. Allow the whites to come up to room temperature. If needed, set the bowl of egg whites into another bowl of hot water.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Dissolve 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder into 1 Tablespoon of hot water, stir and set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the egg whites and begin to whip on low speed.
When the whites are slightly foamy, add the cream of tartar, then continue to beat on low to medium speed until soft peaks form (when the whisk is lifted from the egg whites).
VERY slowly, add the sugar, a tablespoon at a time, while mixing. Increase mixer speed to medium.
When the eggs have reached the stiff peak stage (a stiff peak forms when the whisk is lifted from the mixture), slowly add the prepared espresso, the cocoa powder and the vanilla.
Blend until well combined.
Preheat oven to 300*F.
Stop the mixer, and use a spatula to gently fold in the chocolate chips, reserving a few to add on top of the cookies.
Use a 2 Tablespoon cookie scoop (or work with two spoons) to scoop batter onto the prepared baking sheets. Add a few chocolate chips on top of each cookie.
Bake both baking sheets of cookies in pre-heated oven at 300*F for 10 minutes, then gently switch the position of the baking sheets (move the bottom sheet to the top) and bake an additional 13 minutes. When the timer goes off, DO NOT open the oven. simply TURN OFF the oven, and leave the cookies undisturbed for at least one hour (up to overnight).
Gently peel cookies off of parchment, and store in an airtight container.
