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
- ¼ Pure cocoa powder
- ½ cup Black melted chocolate
Preheat the oven at 110°, and mix the sugar with the cornstarch to avoid the formation of lumps.
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)
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.
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!
