Portions: 20 Small Meringues

Ingredients

Equipment you will need

  • Flat tray
  • Baking Paper
  • Electric whisk/Stand mixer
  • Large Bowl

Method

  1. First you need to preheat your oven to 140C /Gas Mark 1 and line a flat try with baking paper
  2. Now take your large bowl and make sure it is clean and dry then put your egg whites in and whisk on a medium speed until they are stiff peaks (you can check this by putting the bowl over your head if you like) this will take about 5 minutes so don’t worry
  3. Now your egg whites are whisked up you can now slowly add in your sugar a tablespoon at a time whiles you continue to whisk and do this until your mixture is thick and glossy and again you can check this by holding the bowl over you head
  4. Ok now take your piping bag and take your food colouring and drip the colouring on the inside of the piping bag so you can create a great pattern (see photo below). You can now fill your piping bag with your meringue mix and pipe
  5. You can now bake for approximately 1 hour until you can remove your meringues from your baking tray without them sticking
  6. Now open your oven door slightly and leave to cool completely
  7. Now you can melt your chocolate and dip one side of your meringues in and leave to set and then enjoy!
