Strawberry And Lemon Meringue Pops
These meringue pops make fabulous little homemade gifts. Light, crispy pink & white flavoured meringues with a gooey middle. We've gone for strawberry and lemon flavours. They're so much fun to make and even better to eat. Treat someone lovely- they deserve it!
For The Meringue
- 3 large fresh egg whites
- 175 g caster sugar
- 1 tsp cornflour
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 drops red food gel (or any colour you prefer)
- 1 Other edible glitter
For The Icing
- 100 g icing sugar
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 drops lemon flavouring (or any flavouring you prefer)
Preheat The Oven
Preheat the oven to 125ºC.
Make The Meringue
Whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl until you have soft peaks.
Dump in the caster sugar, cornflour and ground cinnamon, then continue whisking until you have stiff glossy peaks.
Brush the inside of a piping bag with the food gel. Spoon the meringue into a piping bag fitted with a wide nozzle of your choice!
Pipe little dollops of meringue, about 10cm across, onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Carefully poke a paper lollipop stick into the bottom of each heart.
Bake in the oven for 1 hour, then switch the oven off and leave the meringue to cool inside.
Decorate And Serve!
Mix the water, flavouring and icing sugar to get a smooth icing.
Generously drizzle the icing over the cooled meringue, then scatter over a few pinches of glitter and freeze dried strawberries.
