South Beach Diet Friendly Chocolate Meringue Cookies

 note: I would use Stevia instead of Splenda. Using 1/4 cup of crushed almonds makes these cookies only 9 calories each. Without the nuts, they are only 5 calories each! If you need your fix, these cookies are it!

Yield: 30 cookies
3 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup Splenda granular (I used a little less than 2/3)
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 handful of crushed almonds (optional) or 1 pecans (optional)

1 Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
2 Combine egg whites, cream of tartar, and vanilla. Beat until the whites form soft peaks. Slowly add sugar substitute and cocoa; beat until stiff peaks form, and mixture becomes glossy.
3 Optional - Fold in nuts.
4 Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls on to a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
5 Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
