Reindeer Meringues

Today we’re making one of the recipes from our Christmas Tea Towels, the Reindeer Meringues! We substituted and altered the recipe below slightly with things we could find in our local shops, such as the candy eyes and chocolate coated pretzels, but feel free to follow the original recipe on the tea towel.

They look so effective and complicated but they are actually very simple- a definite show stopper if you bring them to a Christmas party.

This tea towel makes an excellent gift, especially when presented with some ready made meringues to enjoy!

You’ll defiantly want to bring this recipe out year after year!

Makes aprox 24

Ingredients:

  • 3x Egg whites
  • 3/4 Cup Caster Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 2 Teaspoons Cocoa powder
  • Pretzels (we used chocolate coated) cut in half
  • Candy eyes
  • Sweets, glace cherries or molding chocolate for the noses
  • 50g melted chocolate to attach antlers, eyes and noses

Method:

  1. Heat the oven to 110 degrees c
  2. Beat the egg whites with an electric beater until they form peaks.
  3. Slowly add the sugar will still beating, and beat for about 2-3 minutes until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  4. Sift in the cream of tartar and cocoa powder and fold in gently.
  5. Spoon tablespoons of mixture onto a lined baking tray and form into strawberry shapes to make the deer heads and smooth down any bumps with the back of a clean spoon.
  6. Bake the meringues for 1.5 hours until there is a crisp shell on the outside.
  7. Remove and allow the meringues to cool before decorating.
  8. To decorate, melt the chocolate and use a toothpick to dip in and ‘paint’ the back of the pretzels, eyes and nose to stick them to the heads.
  9. To make the noses, simply melt the holding chocolate until pliable and roll into balls.

Serve up with some hot chocolate and a can cane for a festive treat!

Have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2020!
