It’s almost Easter time and myself and a couple of my friends Mari-Louise and Karen had an idea to create a little series which includes some cool things that you can make/bake/take part in for Easter. A little series full of inspirational goodies for you and your little ones. And because I like being in the kitchen, I thought I’d show you how to make these sweet and tasty little Easter Bunny Meringues!
This year for a lot of us Easter is going to be really different :/ but it doesn’t mean that we still can’t have a bit of fun!
Below you will find the recipe for our Easter Bunny Meringues and if you click here you can watch a video of me and my little family making them 🙂 You can even follow along. These came out so nicely and I love how Rex’s look like bunnies that have perhaps been hit by a moving car hahaha!
I mentioned above that two of my friends have also contributed to this post, if you don’t follow these two ladies already, you should. Mari-Louise aka Justamama and Karen from Lovliee are amazing and really creative, both of them are always coming up with such cool content!
For this series, Mari-Louise has created a list of awesome Easter inspired activities, which I have no don’t any kid will love. If you visit her blog you will not only find them but a bunch of other fun things you can get involved in. And Karen has designed these sweet Easter Egg Hunt Masks and Arrow printables. Just click through to her site to download the files 🙂
I really hope this post will give you guys some awesome ideas to get stuck into this week and will help make your Easter a good one!
Happy baking. Happy hunting. Happy playing.
Ps: Here are some other Easter inspired recipes you can also get stuck into.
· 4 egg whites
· 220 grams of castor sugar
· Food colouring
· Astros, Smarties or any little sweets that will look good as eyes or noses
· Kebab or sucker sticks
- Pre-heat your oven to 130°C (fan-assisted, 150°C without a fan).
- Make sure that all the equipment you are using, bowls, mixer, spatulas etc are clean, free of soap etc. If they have a bit of residue on them it will affect how the meringue whips up.
- In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment or with a hand-held electric mixer start whipping up your egg whites.
- Once frothy start adding your castor sugar, one tablespoon at a time!
- Mix on medium speed for about 1 minute before adding the next tablespoon. It’s a bit of a time-consuming process, but worth it in the end 🙂
- Once your meringue is gooey and stiff, divide it up into three bowls.
- Keep half of it white to make the bunnies bodies. Using some food colouring make the other two bowls of meringues different colours.
- Cut your kebab sticks in half and place them on a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray.
- Load up your piping bags fitted with round nozzles, or whatever shaped nozzles you like. If you don’t have a piping bag and nozzle. Just fill a big ziplock bag up with meringue and snip one of the corners off to form a nozzle.
- Start making your bunnies, using the different colour meringue to highlight the ears, mouths etc. Well, you can actually do whatever you like at this stage 🙂
- Use sprinkles or Smarties etc to make eyes, noses, freckles etc.
- Place in the oven for an hour. When the time is up, switch the oven off and keep the meringues in there until the oven has cooled down.
