These Meringue Droplets were inspired by Eileen's recipe in Munch Ministry but I made some modifications to it. These take a LONGGGGG time to bake but they're pretty effortless. And since they taste so damn good, it's all worth the effort!
Meringue Droplets Recipe
One egg white (I used a 60g weight which had 30g of white)
Equal amount of icing sugar
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
Pink gel food colouring (I used Wilton)
Purple gel food colouring
Preheat oven to 100 degree Celsius.Whisk the egg white till slightly frothy. Once frothy, add the cream of tartar. Add the icing sugar one tablespoon at a time. Allow it to be fully incorporated before adding the next tablespoon.
Whisk it till stiff peaks form. It should be glossy and pretty! (:
Divide into 3 portions and add a small bit of pink gel colouring into a bowl. Mix well.
Add some purple gel colouring into another bowl and mix well.
Add a lil' food colouring at a time.. you can add more when it's insufficient but you can't reduce the intensity of the colour.
Have a star piping tip ready in a piping bag. You can use a cup to 'hold' the piping bag!
Add the 3 colours into the piping bag.. each colour leaning on 1/3 of the side if possible.
Pipe the meringue droplets onto a silpat/silicon mat.
My droplets! Bake in the oven for 2 - 2.5 hours or till surface of meringue is no longer sticky. The purpose for this slow and long bake is to dry out the meringue thoroughly.

Enjoy these pretty melt-in-your-mouth, almost marshmallowy with a crispy exterior Meringue Droplets!
