St. Patrick’s Day Meringues

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. It is one of those fun holidays that everyone loves. Everything is green and you’re always looking for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

We decided to get a little festive. Instead of a pot of gold, how about a bowl of green meringue medallions with a touch of gold? You won’t get rich with these but, they’re sweet and best of all, you can share the “wealth”!

I always thought that making meringue was difficult. Just like I thought making my own hazelnut spread would be tough. It’s not.

It just seems so delicate and elegant that I never gave it a try. The truth is, it’s incredibly easy to make. The result is fluffy, sweet, melt in your mouth goodness. These St. Patrick’s Day meringues turned out great!

They may not be real gold but, they are definitely a treat. Once they melt in your mouth, you will really feel lucky! What I love about this dessert is that it is so simple. These are great to bring into the office, for a school treat, or just to enjoy at home.

Just remember, always check with your school or office for allergies because this recipe contains eggs. For us, we will be making these to enjoy at home and as a cute little gift for friends. You can easily put them in cellophane bags with these cute St. Patrick’s day gift tags.
