Raspberry Meringue

I love meringue cookies! These would be great for Valentine's Day.

Raspberry Meringues
3 egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 oz sugar free raspberry gelatin
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips

Heat oven to 250 degrees.
Beat egg whites with salt and cream of tartar until foamy. Add gelatin and sugar gradually; beat until soft peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Beat in vinegar. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop meringue from teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet lined with parchment or brown paper. (You can trim a brown paper grocery bag to fit the tray.)
Bake 25 minutes. Turn oven off and leave the cookies in the oven 20 minutes longer.
