You do not have to be a five-star chef to perfect the art of meringue baking. Imperfections truly create the story of homemade meringues because they are made with love (and patience). This is your holiday celebration and creativity is key. You can scoop the meringue onto a baking tray into mini meringues using a spoon, or design one large meringue and layer it with fruit, whipped cream and elderberry syrup.
Baking this holiday Mini Meringue Recipe requires just a few basic ingredients and a few simple steps.
- Egg whites
- Granulated sugar
- Black elderberry syrup
- White chocolate
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In large bowl, beat 2 egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Gradually beat in ½ cup of sugar until a little of the mixture between your thumb and forefinger feels smooth, not gritty. Stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Pipe or spoon small portions onto baking tray (If you do not have a meringue pipe, then scoop it using a spoon onto the baking tray. Try to make it higher stacks so that it cooks high and does not flatten out on you.) and bake 35 minutes, or until dry but not brown. Turn off oven and leave meringues to cool inside.
3. Once the meringues are fully cooled. Melt white chocolate in a separate bowl. Add about 1 tablespoon of black elderberry syrup (add more if you prefer a stronger berry taste). Lightly stir in the syrup to form an ombré of purple and white. Try not to over mix. Dip each meringue and place back onto the baking sheet in rows. Leave in the freezer overnight. Prep an hour before serving. You can also add flavors like peppermint, orange, color and holiday sprinkles. Serve and enjoy. Happy Holidays!
