Robin’s Egg Meringue Nests for Easter

March 20, 2018

Ahh, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining and the temperatures are still freezing but nonetheless, today is the first official day of spring which means Easter is right around the corner. Easter is one of my favourite holidays to bake and craft for because of the endless opportunities to use pastels and all things feminine and adorable, and what could be more adorable than easter meringue nests to get you in the mood for spring? These guys are so easy to whip up after you get the hang of making and piping mini meringue nests, which does take some time but is ultimately fairly simple. I also think if you have little kiddos in your life that they would love adding the dulce de leche and eggs on top for a fun Easter craft day. Fair warning, these nests are basically sugar on top of sugar, so if you’re looking to cut that, I’d swap the dulce de leche for lemon curd but still keep the eggs! Happy first day of spring friends!

For The Meringues
  1. 3 egg whites
  2. 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  3. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  4. 3/4 cup sugar
For The Nests
  1. Dulce de Lech (I used store bought)
  2. Chocolate eggs (I used Hershey cookies and cream eggs because I liked the blue colours but mini eggs or any other eggs would work just as well)
For The Meringue Nests
  1. Beat egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form.
  2. Fill a piping bag fitted with a star tip with your meringue. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper start from the inside circling your piping bag to make the nest shape. This may take a few tries
  3. Bake meringue nests at 275 degrees for about an hour, turn off the oven and let them cool inside completely
Notes
  1. Stick a small dot of meringue on each corner of your baking sheet to help the parchment paper stay put
