Wishing you a happy holiday period..bake,eat and be merry!
Today is a short post giving you the recipe for these little melt in mouth treats,combined with a little kitchy styling. What did you bake and eat these past couple of days?
Makes 22 melt in your mouth kisses
2 large egg whites
120 g fine, white sugar
30g powder sugar
1 teaspoon, vanilla extract
40g coco powder (plus extra for dusting)
60g double cream
Preheat oven to 190° C. Line a firm baking-sheet with baking paper.
Place the egg whites in a bowl with the sifted powder sugar and beat until mixed together. Gradually add the sugar whilst beating until it forms a glossy mixture and the egg whites form a peak. Fold in the vanilla extract.
Leave the meringues to cool for 10 minutes. With a spoon, dab a little cocoa mixture in the middle of the meringue base. Join with another meringue for the cocoa mixture to spread evenly. Leave the batch to firm then sift the tops with a little coco powder.
