This is the second baking session with the after eight pieces, the first being the cookies. This time round chocolate meringues with crushed after eight mcflurry pieces in the mixture.
I never even dreamed of making meringues with with after eights until today. My other half was making burgers and asked me if i want his left over egg whites for meringues. I agreed but got to thinking, been there done that so typed in leftover egg whites into google (darn i love google!) Eventually something caught my eye, meringue cookies. Basically meringues with pecans or other nuts and dried fruits mixed into it. Then reading comments on recipes i found people using chocolate chips. Bingo, light bulb flash moment, instead of chocolate chips, i could use the after eight pieces.
I was going to leave them plain but they needed something, a little bite. So out with the after eights yet again. I melted them then dipped the meringue bottoms in the chocolate and to finish off s=drizzled more of the chocolate over the top. Done!
