We found a pot of mini meringues in Aldi a while back and popped them in the cupboard 'for later'. Later is now upon us (as were the meringues - they fell out the cupboard and prompted us to think of how to use them). So, we had a few thoughts and decided on using chocolate as well.
Here's what we were going to use:- the mini meringues, some foil petit four cases and some dark chocolate chips.
Once the chocolate was melted, it was removed from the hot water and Sous Chef J mixed it through with a small silicone spatula.
The bowl of chocolate was placed on a heat proof mat and then each mini meringue's flat bottom was dipped into the chocolate. Meringues were sandwiched together in pairs and placed on a cooling rack to allow the chocolate to set.
It was then a simple job to wait for the chocolate to completely dry before placing each meringue pair in a festive foil petit four case.
