Today I’m going to teach you how to prepare a very simple recipe, some crispy baked meringue mushrooms. They are perfect for decorating holiday cakes. Yummy!!

Christmas is coming!

Christmas is coming, and it´s a perfect gift to give to teachers, nephews, or friends. It´s easy and simple with Thermomix!


  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • A few drops of lemon juice
  • ½  teaspoon Cornstarch

To decorate

  • ¼ Pure cocoa powder
  • ½ cup Black melted chocolate



Step 1

Preheat the oven at 110°, and mix the sugar with the cornstarch to avoid the formation of lumps.


Step 2

Insert the butterfly whisk into the Thermomix and put all the ingredients into the glass and set 4′, 37 °, speed 3, when finished set 5′, speed 3 (do not heat)


Step 3

Transfer meringue to pastry bag with a plain tip and pipe on a tray with baking paper. Mushroom caps should look like large chocolate kisses.Mushroom stems should look like slimmer/taller kisses. Sprinkle with a pinch of cocoa with a strainer and bake 40′, at 110° leaving the tray inside the oven turned off for about 6 hours until dry.


Step 4

Once cold and dry, make a hole with a toothpick under each mushroom top. To assemble, dust the tops and stems lightly with melted chocolate. Leave them upside-down until chocolate hardens and sets. If you like, you can smudge the cocoa powder with your fingers to give them that natural dirty glow.



Use them to decorate a cake, or to serve with coffee, paint them in red or with polka dots, they will be very showy! Also it´s a very original gift!
