Meringue Nests



Meringue nests

So apt for Easter.


Ingredients & Method


To make meringue you will need

3 egg whites

3/4 cup of sugar

1/4 tsp cream of tartar (which I didn't have so left it off)

1 tsp of vanilla extract


Beat the egg whites until they just about begin to hold their shape, add in the cream of tartar and then slowly add in the sugar. Whisk it, whisk it up good!!! The consistency should be cloud like. Add in the vanilla extract and food coloring if desired

I have been super lazy and filled it in with my salted caramel left over from the filled Easter eggs. But it would be lovely to have a pale yellow #buttercream filling to make them look like real birds in a nest
