Recipe: Meringue Mushrooms

This is not for the girl's lunch, but I thought it would be appreciated.  These mushrooms are made of meringue and chocolate and are absolutely adorable.

I followed the instructions here, with a couple of changes.  First, I put a touch of almond extract in with the meringue.  I also used regular sugar that I put in the food processor for a couple of seconds, to make it more fine.  They were also done after about 30 minutes, at 250 F.

I also had some extra stems, and I dipped them partially in chocolate.  Yum!

Cute food is fun.

Pin It!


  1. Thanks! I have thoughts of making them fun - coloring the meringue, painting little spots on them...

  2. The link wouldn't work for me but those are way neat! Hope to see a pic with some painted ones!
