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.
