Fun With Meringue!

I was completely inspired by eri_chan's post about meringue peeps, so I decided to try my hand at it.
The peeps turned out a little deformed since I don't have a pastry bag. I just snipped the end off of a ziplock and spooned the meringue into there. I decided to make bunnies, too. The yellow peeps are flavored with lemon juice (about 3 teaspoons of it) and the blue and pink ones are vanilla. I used food coloring instead of saffron, and the spots and eyes are melted chocolate.

More below the cut! Excuse the poor lighting and blurriness. I'm not much of a food photographer AND my camera hates me.



I'm not sure what they're peering around.

How cute! I think I like the deformed ones better than the store bought, but I'm weird like that.

Oh very nice! I figured the bunnies were peering in order to find a quick escape. ^_^

They are really cute.

lol - congratulations, you were able to accomplish what I could not and actually produce things that look like peeps. Good show! (Mine just ended up as blobs.... tasted good, but were not peeps. sigh.)

A lot of mine deflated on the bottom, and trust me, I got a lot of blobs too. I just didn't take pictures of those. ^_^
Here is the recipe I use for meringue. I've had wild success with it.
