Make White Chocolate Dipped Meringue Trees
If you’re a regular willowday reader then you probably have seen that I like options and these White Chocolate Dipped Meringues can be used in several ways! (see note at bottom of recipe)
Prepare Baking Sheet with baking paper.
Place wafers on the baking sheet.
(These may be purchased, home-made, or chocolate circles and I refer to this on the note at the bottom of the page.)
Place these flat on a pan that is lined with baking paper and start making the meringues.
6 Egg Whites
3 1/2 Cups (8 /12 deciliters) Sugar
Juice from one lemon
1 tsp. Vanilla ExtractChocolate Coating: 350 g White Chocolate
3 T. cooking oilBlend egg whites, sugar, and lemon juice in a stainless steel container. Whip until fluffy by hand for about 1 minute.Place the stainless steel container with meringue over a pot of boiling water. Whisk until the sugar crystals dissolve. Continue until you have soft, fluffy, peaks. Note: if you have a bain marie, use this instead.
Remove the soft meringue from the heat and whisk with an electric hand mixer for a few minutes until the meringue with hard peak form.
Place a large star tip or large round on your pastry bag. Fill the pastry bag with meringue and form trees. Since I made these with kids we had a lot of experimentations. If you apply even pressure and gradually pull up using either tip, the trees will be more even. If you squeeze hard and then, let up and repeat, gradually squeezing less and less, you will form a tiered tree.
I hope you’re having a wonderful season and if you’ve missed the 25 Creative Days in Sweden on-line Calendar, join us: here; it’s been such fun. I’m counting down to Lucia on Saturday. That will be my first post in this series. I’m curious, is this holiday you’re familiar with?
Until then, wishing you a wonderful day.
