It’s a little early in the year for peppermint meringues, which is something I make most years at Christmas- and combined with the colder weather we’ve had swoop in here in Michigan- it really made me think of the cold weather.
We LOVE meringue in this house. In pretty much all forms- gooey on pie, baked and chewy or baked and crunchy. With no exception, we loved these. I’ve never added chocolate pieces to meringue, and I think the only thing I’d have liked to change was to use chipped chocolate to marble the meringue itself with it. I’m also not a fan of the scoop and dump method for meringues, but with the chocolate, it seemed clunky and I couldn’t quite get the hang of the shaping with a piping bag.
Delicious none the less!
