Vegan Meringue Kisses, the perfect little festive treat! These cute little desserts would look great in a gift box or on a dessert platter at a festive party.
Since discovering aquafaba, I’m constantly amazed at what it can do. A few months ago, we made the BEST vegan mayonnaise ever (including garlic, obviously) using aquafaba, and you REALLY wouldn’t know the difference. It’s like the most versatile vegan replacement I’ve found.
When I first started Lauren Caris Cooks, it was a non-vegan baking blog. I’d been into baking and cakes for about as long as I can remember, and thought I might even start my own cake business one day. Going vegan and changing the theme of this blog was one of the best decisions I ever made, but obviously baking and veganism aren’t exactly two things that go together very well.
That’s why when I find things like aquafaba, that make it so easy to create things like vegan meringue that look and taste exactly like regular meringues that are made using egg white, I get a little bit too excited…
Seriously, showing people how EASY it is to create exciting, fun food that is vegan is so important to me. I find the most common reason people say they wouldn’t or don’t want to go vegan is that they don’t want to give up certain foods. Things like vegan meringue go a long way in proving that going vegan does NOT mean giving up anything you love, there’s always a way ;)
These cute little vegan meringue kisses are SO easy to make, there’s just 3 ingredients, plus anything you’d like to decorate them with. I kept it really simple for the decoration with a little bit of gel food colouring to make the pink stripy ones (full instruction on how to do this are in the recipe notes section below), then some drizzled dark chocolate, some nuts and cocoa powder! You don’t even need a piping nozzle to make these, just chop the end of your piping bag off!
I’ll definitely be giving away lots of these as gifts this Christmas, and I know your friends and family will love them too!
Don’t forget to bookmark the Vegan Advent Calendar 2016 page, and come back everyday until the 24th December at 4pm for a new festive, vegan post!
