Assemble Your Ingredients

For easily printable instructions, please refer to the Meringue Mushrooms recipe.

First, assemble your ingredients. To make the meringue, you will need two egg whites at room temperature, 1/4 tsp cream of tartar, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. I prefer to use superfine sugar, as it dissolves quickly and does not produce a grainy texture. If you don't have superfine sugar, you can place regular sugar in a blender and process it for about 20 seconds to create superfine sugar.

In addition to the ingredients for the meringue, you will need 1/4 cup white chocolate or candy coating, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, an electric mixer with a whisk attachment, two baking sheets covered with parchment paper, and a pastry bag fitted with a coupler or a 1/2-inch round tip.
