Cook the Issue 2010: Peppermint Meringue Kisses

By Pielove, member

January 9th, 2011

I had a lot of egg whites left over after making the lemon curd for the tart, so I made a double recipe.  Actually, my daughter and I made a double recipe-- we watched the online video together and then made the whole recipe.  She really enjoyed whipping the egg whites-- "So shiny!!"-- and sprinkling the candy can pieces.  Perhaps you can tell from the exuberant sprinkling that a 6-year-old was involved.  

We piped out half the batter, then I sifted on and folded in some cocoa powder for chocolate meringues-- favored by the adults, not by the kid.  My daughter love, love, loved these.  I found the texture a bit like sweet styrofoam, but I liked the cocoa and mint.  Two notes: first, I recommend crushing the candy a bit finer-- our pieces were a bit too big.  Also, I didn't whip the egg whites enough, so I have kind of sloppy kisses!  (smooooootch!)

liamsaunt, yes, this is one of the online extras-- it is from the same video as the nutella brownie bites. I don't recommend it, especially since you have mentioned you don't like sweet... Posted: 4:56 pm on January 9th
