This afternoon we are going to a Halloween party. The kids are so excited!
I have made these Ghost Meringues to bring along. How cute and how easy!
I made them using my Thermomix I found a great recipe below and simple added Rainbow Chocolate Bits for eyes. I have also have a meringue recipe for those of you who don’t own a Thermomix.
Meringues – Thermomix Recipe
Recipe from Thermomix Recipes
3 Egg-Whites (about 110 g)
330 g Sugar (3 times egg-whites weight)
What to do
Put sugar in the bowl. 10 sec. Speed turbo.
Place the butterfly tool inside the bowl.
Add egg-whites and a pinch of salt. 7 Min. 37° Speed 2. Let it get cold without the lid for about 10 Min.
Mix 7 Min. Speed 2.
Put the mixture in a pastry bag and shape as you like. Make many small meringues (of the size you prefer) or one bigger disc of meringue as for a Pavlova cake If you don’t have a pastry bag you can use two tablespoons.
Place the mixture on a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
It’s very important to leave some space between meringues because they increase their volume.
Cook for about 60-90 Min. 100° or 120 Min. 80°. It depends on your oven and on your meringues size. At the end of the cooking you can let meringues get cold inside the open oven. In this way they will dry inside too.
Recipe from Taste
4 egg whites, at room temperature
Pinch of salt
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
What to do
Preheat oven to 120°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
Use an electric mixer to whisk egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, a tablespoon at a time, whisking well between each addition, until sugar dissolves.
Once all the sugar has been added, continue to whisk on high for 3 mins. Whisk in the vanilla essence.
Use two teaspoons to spoon meringue onto lined trays. Reduce the oven temperature to 90°C.
Bake meringues for 1 hour 30 mins. Turn oven off and leave meringues in the oven to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
