Xylitol Meringue Kisses

Serves: 150 Cooking time: 90 MINUTES
Xylitol meringue kisses

Ingredients:

  • 2 large free range egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of cream of tartar
  • 200g of powdered Total Sweet Xylitol To make this put the Total Sweet in a food blender for a few minutes

We made these for the first time for the Cake and Bake show in September and they were a huge hit with everyone and are a brilliant alternative to sugar loaded sweets.

Method:

  1. Line two baking trays with baking paper 
  2. In a bowl whisk together the egg whites and salt until foamy
  3. Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat until soft peaks form
  4. Add in the Total Sweet a little at a time and continue to beat for around 8 minutes
  5. Place in a piping bag and pipe a small meringue, about the size of a 2p piece, at a time onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving a little peak on the top of each kiss
  6. Bake for an hour and a half in the pre heated oven
  7. Once cooked, turn off the heat and allow to cool in the oven, with the door open, overnight (for 8-12 hours). Please be careful with the oven door open!
  8. Peel the kisses off the sheet and store in an airtight container
