Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Meringue Roses

Eat these pretty treats as is or crush them into a bowl of strawberries and whipped cream. Readers of my blog, utry.it, went nuts when I posted that idea.—Amy Tong, Anaheim, California
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. + standing Bake: 40 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
  • 1 cup 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking chips, melted

Directions

  • Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 225°.
  • Place sugar and strawberries in a food processor; process until powdery. Add gelatin; pulse to blend.
  • Beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy, adding vanilla if desired. Gradually add gelatin mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until sugar is dissolved. Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form.
  • Cut a small hole in the tip of a pastry bag; insert a #1M star tip. Transfer meringue to bag. Pipe 2-in. roses 1-1/2 in. apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  • Bake until set and dry, 40-45 minutes. Turn off oven (do not open oven door); leave meringues in oven 1-1/2 hours. Remove from oven; cool completely on baking sheets.
  • Remove meringues from paper. Dip bottoms in melted chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set, about 45 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
