Meringue Kisses. Well if you have been following our recent post then you know this one is coming! Meringue Kisses! Wow! Why have I waited so long to try these??? They are so easy to make. I could have been doing this all along! I feel so cheated!
You only need two ingredients. Sugar and egg whites! That’s it. Now if you want to make pretty colors then you can add food coloring to the list and if you want to flavor them other flavors, extract. But these were perfect as is!
You will want to line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and measure out 425 grams of sugar. Bake it in a oven at 400 degrees just until the edges start to turn light brown. It doesn’t take long. About 5 minutes.
While its baking measure out your egg whites in a mixing bowl with a wire whisk. You will need 225 grams of egg whites.
Beat egg whites on low until they become foamy and then turn to high. Whisk on high until stiff peaks form.
Once the sugar and egg whites are ready scoop the sugar into the egg whites. You can also use the corners of the parchment paper to lift it up and pour the sugar into the bowl. Pour it in while it is still hot.
Turn the mixer gradually back up to high and whisk for 7 more minutes until it is smooth and glossy.
It is now ready for piping!
You can dye it with food coloring in batches, paint stripe inside your bag like we did in our video below, use different tips for different shapes and use different extracts for different flavors.
Pipe your shapes onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in a 200 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until the meringues come up off the paper without separating from the bottom. They should remove completely clean!
They can be saved in a airtight container for a few weeks at room temp.
These make any dessert adorable and are super yummy to eat alone!! Try some on your next dessert and post some pics on our Facebook page!
