Of course they must be pretty and taste delicious – that is no secret!
So what is the secret?
They must, must, be one bite! Not two, not three — just one, pleasant pop in the mouth. I’m known to be a bit quirky, so this may just be me. (I’m open to it. ;-).)
In the case of a crispy meringue, if they’re too big for one easy fit into my mouth, and I have to take a bite into them, they crunch, crumble and somehow bring my mind to fingers on a chalkboard. However, if they are one, small perfect fit into my mouth, they melt and the wonderful, sweet flavors cover my palate and make me very happy.
Is anyone with me on this? Or is it simply my own quirky preference? I really want to know, so please tell me in the comments.
Oh, and the Mocha Meringues are made with Dave’s Coffee Syrup. My friend Aimée gave me a bottle of this deliciousness as a fantastic holiday gift, and I’m loving experimenting with it. (Don’t be surprised if it turns up in a few more recipes this week.)
