Meringue Cookies

My mom used to make this recipe all the time when we were kids. She called them meringue surprise, since there was chocolate and nuts inside. My kids think the surprise is not that exciting so they just called them meringue! To make them more fun I added some toppings to it. It’s so good and super easy to make and the kids super excited when I make them.
