Meringues: Better Than Chocolate?

In February, chocolate is everywhere. But what if your valentine isn’t a fan? Yes, these people are out there (my fiancé, sadly, is one of them). If you’re stuck with this dilemma too, but need a sweet treat to end your romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, Laura Calder has your solution: Homemade meringues. Even I, a confessed chocoholic, might pick one of these melt-in-your-mouth confections over a dipped strawberry.

Even though it needs only two ingredients — sugar and egg whites — this cookie can be a challenge. To achieve that perfect balance of crisp-on-the-outside and marshmallowy-on-the-inside, Laura walks us through the process step-by-step and shares tips and tricks. Brown sugar? Who knew!

Check out Laura's secrets to perfect meringues, plus many more helpful how-to videos from Cooking Channel chefs.
