Tuesday Tasties: Baymax Meringue

(Fist bump) "Bah-a-la-la-la!" - Baymax
Are you satisfied with your care? We'll show you how to
satisfy your stomachs with this sweet treat!

We're bringing back an old favorite today: meringue cookies!
This simple yet delectable treat is perfect for cake decorations,
customizable treats, or even just plain "cookies" to munch on!

- 6 eggs (we recommend using cold eggs to help with whipping!)
- 3 th cups of confectioner's sugar (also called powdered sugar)
- Semi-sweet baking chocolate (but let's be real, any kind is delicious,
just be sure to stick to milk or dark!)
- Vanilla extract (optional)

- Hand mixer (a whisk or stand mixer will also work just as well!)
- Large bowl (preferably metal)
- Parchment/Baking paper (not wax paper, ok~)
- Baking tray(s)
- Chopsticks, toothpicks, or even a little parchment paper makeshift piping bag
- A piping bag or a ziplock bag with the tip cut off
- Cup (optional)

At least 4 dozen 2"x1.5" Baymax heads (●━●) ♡

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°F.
  2. Separate egg yolks and egg whites, and pour all the egg whites into the large bowl. Save the egg yolks for another cooking adventure!
  3. Whisk the egg whites until they become light and foamy.
  4. Begin to incorporate the sugar little by little, mixing in between.
  5. Once the eggs reach stiff peaks, it's ready!
    • Here's your chance to add the vanilla if you'd like
  6. We used a cup to help us pour the mixture into our piping bag.
  7. Pipe it onto parchment paper fitted to your baking tray into Baymax-shaped heads!
    • The meringues do not spread much at all in the oven, so you can pipe them pretty close.
    • If you end up with little tips like we did, wet your finger and press down.
  8. Bake for ~1hr 30min.
  9. While you're waiting you can melt your chocolate!
  10. After they're done, let them cool for a bit before drawing on his face with some chocolate. And you're done!  ♡ (●━●) ♡
Holiday Remix!
Using the same recipe and some food coloring (we recommend gel!) you can create adorable holiday meringue cookies for any occasion.

If you take ~4 cups of this recipe and dye the meringue red, you can easily make adorable an army of Santa Baymax!

Happy Baking!
