Raspberry & Chocolate Meringues


I know this isn’t too relevant but I had to share these meringues (I hope this isn’t turning into a baking blog).  Inspired by my favourite cafe Little & Friday

I served them for my family Christmas lunch, they would be great for a party or entertaining


150mls Egg white (approx 4 egg whites, if more discard)

1 cup Caster sugar

2 teaspoons Cornflour

1 teaspoon White vinegar

1 teaspoon Vanilla essence

100g Chocolate (I used Cadbury Energy)

20g Fresh As Raspberries (Half a packet)


Preheat the oven to 150°c

Chop the chocolate into small pieces

I used Fresh As freeze dried Raspberry pieces

Whip the eggs whites until soft peaks

Gradually add the sugar and beat until glossy

Sift the cornflour over the mixture and fold through the vinegar and vanilla essence

Add the chocolate pieces and raspberries and gently fold through

Dollop the meringue mixture onto a baking sheet the size you prefer or you can pipe it on for a more uniform shape.  Just make sure the chocolate and raspberries will fit through the nozzle or hole

Dust with a little icing sugar and serve

I found the raspberries a little tart, I’m not sure if it was the batch or they are like that because they are freeze dried


Christmas Mallow Pops

I thought I would share a how to on the Christmas Mallow Pops I made for the Christmas table setting

I crushed some candy canes in glad snap lock bag with a rolling pin

Then stuck marshmallows on the striped straws

I used Oki-Doki Marshy-Mallows, they are nice and big to dip

Then I melted chocolate for dipping

I dipped it into the chocolate then sprinkled the candy cane on top

I placed them on baking paper to set in the fridge

Did i mention they are so yummy!The striped paper straws, mini glass bottles and steel pails are all available through Pop Roc Parties
