No #PinterestFails! Easy-to-form Meringue Snow Angels are fun to make. Topped with a (health!) halo, but large enough to satisfy any sweet tooth.
Sometimes, something good comes from a #PinterestFail.
See these cute little guys from Betty Crocker.
And these even cuter guys from Martha Stewart.
Surely I can handle pins by Betty. Even if I can’t recreate pins from Martha. But obviously, these little misshapen men are a far cry from either Betty or Martha’s pins.
Here’s what happened.
I asked my kids what I should make for this month’s Recipe ReDux theme of ‘Healthy Holiday Desserts,’ and they (surprisingly!) said meringue mushrooms. They were remembering the time a few years ago when I “made a cake of wood.” It was the traditional French Christmas cake, Buche de Noel, which is shaped like a wooden log. The kids’ favorite part of the cake were the chocolate frosting stuffed meringue mushrooms. (Last year I also made the easy little mushrooms for a Gnome Birthday Cake.) But for this holiday post, I wanted to branch out from mushrooms. I turned to Pinterest for inspiration.
Thus the failed melting, misshapen meringue snowmen above.
We brainstormed about other meringue shapes: Snowballs (tricky,) Christmas trees (already been done, really well,) and ultimately…snow angels.
Now the best part: Snow angels are way, way easier than meringue snowmen.
Whether you decorate them.
You can totally do this. No #PinterestFails. I promise. Easy-to-make Simple Meringue Snow Angels are a holiday treat. With a halo! Via @TspCurry #TheRecipeReDux Click To Tweet
And just in case you still want to try mushrooms, they’re really easy too! I used this technique to shape them.
