Meringue kisses

My greatest weakness in cooking has always been meringues… not for taste just I could never cook them right, either they go brown or they flatten in the oven or they just wont go crisp. So I set myself a challenge for the last few weeks to resolve this, yes it took me a few weeks… but I have learned where I have gone wrong. No 1, I have always set the oven too high and didn’t have enough patience to wait and No 2, I didn’t whisk them enough. But now I am proud to say Ta Dahhh I am able to cook them perfectly with a low set temperature and a sore arm! So to kick start this week I have put up this cute little recipe which is addictive but fun to make. Believe me they wont last long…..

  • 3 tbsp of Strawberry jam
  • 100g Dark chocolate
