Recipe: Sweet and crunchy Meringues

I have always loved meringues, but I was never tried to make it myself. So when I finally found this easy recipe, I tried it and I fell in love. I make meringues a lot!

With the egg yolks, I make my famous crème brûléé. It is an ideal combination and you do not waste any ingredients!

You can do this my hand, but it will be pretty hard. I love to use my standing mixer, but a hand mixer is also possible. And if you do it my hand, I am sure you will train a bit at the same time!

Meringues

Meringues or also know as sugar bombs in my house. If I make a batch, it is gone just as fast as it takes to make them. I have been addicted to sweets as long as I know and this is no exception. Most of the time, I make them in combination with my Crème Brûléé, so I won’t have to throw ingredients away. This means you have double the sweets and you can even make this recipe 3 times!
