mini chocolate cornflake pavlova meringues

April 30, 2007 at 2:13 am | Posted in Chocolate, Meringue | 20 Comments

i decided to reward myself tonight because i finished what i set out to study today. it’s commendable because i usually have no drive to study at home. i wanted to make something fuss-free and light; perfect for (repetitive) munching without feeling weighed down. these are for tomorrow’s session in school, to be shared with two lovelies.

adapted from lust: for love of chocolate by audrey tan

3 egg whites
150g caster sugar
15g cornflour
60g chocolate chips
a handful of crushed cornflakes

1. preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius. arrange around 30 mini paper cups on a baking tray.

2. in a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. continue to beat egg whites, adding 140g sugar gradually. beat until stiff peaks form.

3. lower speed and add cornflour and remaining sugar. increase speed and beat until stiff peaks form. the mixture should be firm and glossy.

4. spoon or pipe mixture into mini paper cups. fill paper cups up halfway. add a few chocolate chips and a sprinkling of crushed cornflakes to each cup, then spoon or pipe over with more meringue. top with more chocolate chips if desired. bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour until meringues are light and dry. leave to cool before serving or storing in an airtight container.

  1. I love that you have daily posts now!! It’s such a joy to see something new everytime I visit your blog…
    And these babies are soooo pretty!! I love the meringue take on cornflake cookies. Keeps the munchies at bay and yet it’s still light enough not to make you feel guilty for snacking. *grin*
    And did i mention how pretty they look? πŸ˜‰

  2. chitz: daily posts when i’m having two papers this week. is that self-murder or what. hahahah. yeahhhhh it’s so light you can’t stop popping them into your mouth! πŸ˜€ i’m going to try yr meringue recipe next. πŸ˜‰

  3. maya, you might as well open up a dessert shop. i know it’ll be a hit πŸ™‚

  4. ishhh takdelah… you’re too kind!

  5. Hi There!! was blog hopping and just wanted to say hi. First of all, i gotta say that ur bakes sure look yuumy!! I love to bake too but bcos my kitchen at home is super crampy, it turns me off and thus, making me lazy to bake πŸ™‚ By e way, im wondering, how come u have all these baking ingrediants readily at home? so shiok man.. πŸ™‚

  6. ash: hello, thanks for dropping by! hmm i have the “basic” ingredients only… heh. the other more “special” ones need to buy la. that’s why usually the stuff i make are simple with ingredients that are on hand!

  7. ya know maya…. these meringues…? they look to cute to be chowed down! haha! bet they’re absolutely deli… your 2 lovelies are immensely spoilt =)

  8. hana: haha spoilt eh? maybe to some degree. :p

  9. hee…madame, you’re spoiling us too much! hurhur..

  10. well… the best only deserve the best right? πŸ˜€

  11. looks so tempting.

  12. hi maya,

    i tried recipe today and failed twice.
    haha, my mixture wasn’t firm and the conflakes and chocolate mixed with the mixture.

    sign, do you know why?

  13. lynn: i’m really sorry to hear that. i checked the recipe and everything’s right. extreme care must be taken when you’re whipping egg whites. not even a little bit of the yolk should get in the bowl. what do you mean that the cornflakes and chocolate mixed with the mixture? you’re supposed to put a bit of the mixture, sprinkle the chips and cornflakes in the middle, and top with more mixture. i’m really sorry it didn’t quite turn out for you. but practice makes perfect. πŸ™‚

  14. thanks maya for the encouragement!
    wad i meant abt the mixture mixed with cornflakes and choc is that the mixture is so watery, that the cornflakes and choc will just merge with the mixture.

    haha, anyway, do i have to butter the papercups, cause my end product stick to the papercup:(

    i shall try other recipe of yours!

  15. lynn: no, there’s no need to butter the papercups. don’t worry, you can always try again. meringues are quite difficult to make, in my opinion at least. try the cookies, they’re more forgiving! πŸ™‚

  16. Maya, I tried this recipe just now and it’s yummy!!! There’s something that attracts me, I wonder if it’s the sweet candy floss alike aroma or the texture. =P

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe again!

  17. I forgot to mention that it’s the first time I tasted meringues and I really like it. I’m thinking whether I should make another batch tomorrow for my friends. =P

  18. bernice: i think it’s both. πŸ˜‰ i’m glad it turned out for you, because sometimes i also have problems with the texture.

  19. HI dear the macaroon is superlicious yummy…:) i’m happy with it and thanks for sharing such a great recipes!!!

  20. You’re welcome Diah! πŸ™‚ I’m making a batch right about now… LOL.
