Triple Chocolate Kisses

These crisp meringue cookies with a chocolate center are easy to make but look like you spent a lot of time. When our son and daughter-in-law moved into their first home on Valentine's Day, I prepared them a nice dinner and gave them a batch of these treats. -Evelyn Lindburg, Shenandoah, Iowa
