Just buzz them little berries up!
Looking for a fine powder finish.
Whip the egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, vanilla until soft peaks form. (Use a stand or hand mixer on high). While beating, add about a tablespoon of sugar at a time.
Now there's a stiff peak. Your meringue shouldn't move when you turn it upside down.
Sift out larger pieces and strawberry seeds. Now gently fold HALF of the strawberries it into your meringue.
Fill a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. ⭐️
Sprinkle with the remaining strawberry powder and bake! Preheated 200 degree oven for 2 hours. Then turn your oven off and dry for 2 hours. And what's that peeking out from the bottom?!?! Well...
Why yes, that's chocolate. Good eye! After your meringues are dry, melt chocolate in a small bowl and evenly spread the back of the meringues. Place back on your sheet pan to set about 30 min.
Nothing left to do but enjoy! These do best when stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
