For the recipe  Meringue Snowmen

For the Meringue:

3 Dr. Oetker Free Range Egg White Powder Sachets (or 3 egg whites)
225 g Caster Sugar

To Decorate:

Dr. Oetker Orange Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Black Extra Strong Food Colour Gel




For the Meringue

Preheat your oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and place 225g caster sugar on a lined baking tray, then put in the oven for 7 minutes.


Make up the egg whites following the instructions on the back of pack. Place in a stand mixer and whisk slowly to allow small stabilising bubbles to form, increasing the speed until stiff peaks form.


Take the sugar out of the oven and turn the heat down to 100°C/80°C fan/¼ gas. With the mixer on full speed, slowly spoon in the hot sugar and continue to whisk for 5 minutes or until all the sugar is incorporated.


Pour the meringue mixture into a piping bag. To create the snowmen, pipe one large circular blob onto a lined tray, then pipe a slightly smaller blob on top, and finally top with an even smaller blob for the head. Repeat until you’ve used all the mixture. Bake for 35-45 minutes and allow to cool in the oven.


To Decorate

To add features, use a small paintbrush and Black Food Colour Gel to add two dots of the Black Food Colour Gel for eyes, three dots for buttons and a small line for a smile. Then add a nose using the Orange Food Colour Gel, and leave to dry.
