So these were really fun to whip up. Cute. Colorful. Adorable.
And you only need two ingredients to make them. Unless you want to color them and then it’s only three. I like it.
I used the recipe from the New Meringue Girls Cookbook  that releases in June, but you can preorder it now. I received an early copy from my friends at Chronicle Books. I like sweet surprises.
The Meringue Girls Mixture is super easy to remember. One part egg whites to two parts sugar.
(P.S. I’ve gotten used to photographing things one handed with my left hand turned backwards balancing the camera and holding ingredients in my right hand. I’m pretty proud of grabbing this one before the egg white dropped. I should use a tripod sometimes but I never do. I’m too impatient I guess.)
Make the meringues with superfine sugar and heat the crystals in the oven for about 5 minutes so it will dissolve more quickly when added to the egg whites.
Whisk away and then when ready for the sugar, add heaping spoonfuls of warm sugar one at a time to the whipped egg whites.
Smooth and shiny.
You can leave your meringues marshmallowy white, you can flavor them and color them, too.
For stripes of color, turn a piping bag inside out and brush on stripes of food coloring.
Carefully turn it back and fill with meringue.
Then snip off the end and pipe little kisses.
Or for solid color kisses, gently fold the color into the meringue mixture until combined.
Pretty and fun.
Just like the Meringue Girls.
Check out their videos below on how to make and color meringue. These two London girls are as cute as their confections.
And here’s a peek inside the Meringue Girls Cookbook  full of decadent desserts and colorful confections.
