Meringue kisses
Impress your party guests with these mini meringues. 

100g egg whites (3 large eggs)

Pinch of salt

100g caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

100g icing sugar, sifted

Pink, blue and yellow liquid food colour


3 large plastic piping bags

3 star piping nozzles

Preheat oven to 80°C/gas mark ¼. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Place egg whites and pinch of salt into the bowl of an electric mixer (make sure it is completely grease-free) and whisk at high speed.

As the whites thicken, slowly sprinkle the caster sugar into the mix. Be careful not to over-whisk.

Add the vanilla extract and slowly fold in the icing sugar using a rubber spatula.

Separate the mixture into three parts; keep the first white, mix the second with pink liquid food colour and the third with blue and yellow liquid food colour for a pastel aqua shade.

Place a star nozzle in each piping bag then fill each one with a different coloured mixture.

Pipe little rosettes onto the lined baking trays. Place in the preheated oven for 2-3 hours or until they have dried out.
