Airy kisses for my Valentine

In a hurry? Nothing prepared for this day? You can still make a bunch of these....

All you need is love :

2 egg whites
130 gr fine sugar

a very clean bowl
a hand mixer with very clean whisks
(use some lemon juice on a paper towel to wipe bowl and whisks)

Basic: whip egg-whites up to volume, add sugar, whip to stiff peaks form and the mass is satiny.
Transfer to piping bag fitted with a smooth tip and pipe little dots on a prepared bakingsheet (grease a little or use paper/mats).
Bake in a preheated oven 150C or 240F for 20 minutes.

Fancy: add flavour and colour by using cacao, or instant cappucino powder. (Mix with sugar and add). Add 1 ts vanilla extract with the egg whites. Add some crushed chocolate and nuts to the stiff egg whites and carefully mix with a spatula.

This time I added some orange flavoured sugar and put a butterscotch morsel (Hersheys) on top. Simple and delicious!


  1. Those look delicious! I made cupcakes :)

  2. I've been meaning to make something like this forever. The butterscotch is a super idea.

  3. Karen, they are so cute! That's a good photo there- they look like little storybook soldiers.

  4. Happy Valentine's Day, Karen!

  5. Mmmm, die zien er heerlijk uit vooral die met die morsel erop....uh, wat is een morsel?

  6. Dat zijn van die hele leuke opgespoten tuutjes van bak-chocola, in de US in overvloed te koop in mega veel smaken, maar hier helaas niet, snik. Dit zijn een paar van de laatste zak die mijn zusje heeft meegenomen voor me uit Amerika...ben er heel zuinig op, dat zie je.

  7. It looks like an army of kisses~ yummy kisses at that.

  8. Thank you all!

    @Lindy and Sandi: I had to defend this army with my life...till I had a chance to take a picture.. there were 4 boys prowling, eager to bite.
