Minty Meringue Kisses(All Purpose Meringue) Recipe

Darell Bell


These are affordable but elegant cookies that can be made for weddings, holidays, baby showers etc. You can color the meringue and use different types of flavorings and chocolate to make these cookies unique.

The meringue recipe makes a small batch but this recipe can be doubled (do not increase the salt however if doubling).

The meringue recipe is an all purpose recipe for meringue. If you look in the photos section I have uploaded a cake that I covered in meringue flowers and swirls.

PLEASE NOTE: You do need to allow these to dry out overnight.

How to Make Minty Meringue Kisses(All Purpose Meringue) Recipe


  • 1Place the egg whites in a clean medium sized bowl.

  • 3Add in cream of tartar and salt. Turn the mixer to medium and beat just until fluffy and soft peaks begin to form.
  • 4Add the sugar gradually, so it incorporates into the whites slowly without collapsing them.
  • 5Once all sugar is incorporated add in the vanilla extract(or almond extract). Mix just until flavoring is incorporated into the whites.
  • 6Place meringue into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe the egg whites onto parchment paper or a silpat. The cookies should be about 1 inch in diameter. You can make about 12 to 18 cookies.
  • 7Bake for 1 hour undisturbed then turn off heat and leave in the oven overnight to dry out.
  • 8Melt chocolate in a double boiler or carefully in the microwave.
  • 9Add the mint oil into the melted chocolate.
  • 10Dip the base of the cooled meringues into the mint chocolate and place on wax paper to cool.
