If you’re looking for a quick and easy last minute Valentine’s Day recipe, these marbled meringue kisses are the perfect treat! They have a crunchy outer shell, and a chewy marshmallow center. Everyone loved them!
175g of egg whites (Approximately 5 large eggs) at room temperature
Pink and/or red food dye
Preheat oven to 200°F (90°C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks. Slowly add sugar. Continue whisking until stiff peaks; the time will vary depending on the temperature of your egg whites.
Prepare a pastry bag by cutting off the end and inserting a large round tip. (I used an 18mm.) Squeeze in some food coloring on either side of the piping bag. Careful not to add too much or the meringues could end up tasting bitter.
Pour half of the meringue mixture into the prepared piping bag. Pipe the kisses about one inch wide onto the baking sheet. Continue piping in rows until you’ve used all the meringue. Repeat with a new piping bag, and a different food color if desired.
Bake for approximately 1 1/2 hours or until they can be lifted cleanly from the parchment paper. Allow the meringues to cool completely before enjoying!
