I made these for Easter and filled with coconut grass and coated Easter eggs. They turned out very cute. Also dusted the finished nest with cocoa powder.
I will continue to look for a good meringue recipe. I made this recipe with the intent to crumble the meringue nests and use in another recipe. I was going to fill the remaining uncrumbled meringues with fruit. I baked according to the directions, but mine seemed to be overly browned.
This is a yes but. I used to make this recipe in our old house with a wonderful Thermador wall oven (electric). Never had a problem. Now we are living in another house where the previous owners installed an expensive Thermador range with a gas oven. To say that I hate the gas oven for baking is an understatement. I just inspected the nests after 20 minutes. They were brown and the top and crumbling. There goes my dessert for tonight. I wish I could say the same for the stove. I will give this recipe five stars because I've made it before with no problems. The oven gets no stars.
this is such a nice recipe, quick and easy. I did find the ready made meringue nests, large and minis on a website called wishuponaplate(dot)com

I love these, they're easy to make and a great light dessert after a large meal

Been a while since I have mademeringue nest for dessert. Love to put a lite pudding in shell and top with fresh fruit and whipping cream....guest go crazy. I have hostess duty at the end of April for our CWF group at church. We are having a Spring theme for the evening. This dessert will be the topper! Thanks
