Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Meringue Roses Recipe

Eat these kid-friendly treats as is, or crush them into a bowl of strawberries and whipped cream. Readers of my blog, utry.it, went nuts when I posted that idea! —Amy Tong, Anaheim, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:42 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
  • 1 cup 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking chips, melted

Directions

  • 1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 225°.
  • 2. Place sugar and strawberries in a food processor; process until powdery. Add gelatin; pulse to blend.
  • 3. Beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy, adding vanilla if desired. Gradually add gelatin mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until sugar is dissolved. Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form.
  • 4. Cut a small hole in the tip of a pastry bag or in a corner of a food-safe plastic bag; insert a #1M star tip. Transfer meringue to bag. Pipe 2-in. roses 1-1/2 in. apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  • 5. Bake 40-45 minutes or until set and dry. Turn off oven (do not open oven door); leave meringues in oven 1-1/2 hours. Remove from oven; cool completely on baking sheets.
  • 6. Remove meringues from paper. Dip bottoms in melted chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set, about 45 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.

"Recipe made more than stated but mine may of been smaller. Everyone liked them. They were pretty to look at. I used the flower tip that I had. I spooned chocolate on back of cookie and left chocolate side up to dry. They were a light and tasty treat for everyone to enjoy.

Other flavors of fruit that can be used are: dried apple, berry, or tropical fruits. By changing and using other flavor jell-o this dessert could be made to taste different"
