Ingredients

  • 3 Egg Whites Room temperature
  • 150 g Caster Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Peppermint Extract
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • Red Food Colouring
  • Crushed Candy Canes Decoration, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 120°C (250°F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • In a clean, dry bowl, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks.
  • Gradually add the caster sugar while continuing to beat the egg whites. Beat until the mixture is glossy and forms stiff peaks. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  • Gently fold in the peppermint extract and a pinch of salt. If you want, add a few drops of red food colouring to create a pink swirl effect.
  • Using a piping bag or a spoon, drop dollops of the meringue mixture onto the prepared baking tray. Leave some space between each dollop.
  • If desired, sprinkle crushed candy canes on top of the meringues for extra flavour and decoration.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour or until the meringues are crisp on the outside and easily lift off the parchment paper.
  • Once done, turn off the oven and leave the meringues inside for an additional 30 minutes to an hour to dry out completely.
  • Remove the peppermint meringues from the oven and let them cool completely before serving.
