Method

1.Heat the sugar in the oven for about 5 -7 mins in 200C – it will dissolve quicker when added to the egg.

2.Whisk the egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff glossy peaks begin to form, then whisk in the warm sugar – spoon by spoon.

3.Whisk at full speed until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth and stiff.

4.Using a kitchen brush or a paintbrush paint stripes of the food coloring down the inside of the piping bag.

5.Spoon your meringue mixture into the piping bag.

6.Pipe the meringue onto prepared baking sheet – squeeze then release the pressure and pull up.

7.Bake at 100C for 30 – 40min until the kisses can easily be lifted off from the paper with their bases intact. Let it cool completely.
