Peppermint Chocolate Chip Meringues

I can’t believe this is our last recipe from Baked Occasions! I also can’t believe it’s been three years since the book came out and I went to NYC for the launch party; truly one of the best days of my life!

We’re finishing up the book with these Peppermint Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies. I actually spent the last four days making a two tier Paw Patrol birthday cake, so I was a bit baked out, but I just had to join in for the last recipe of the book.

These cookies are a simple mixture of egg whites, sugar, peppermint extract and mini chocolate chips, plus a bit of cream of tartar. They get baked at a low temperature for a long time, so you end up with that crispy outside that shatters when you bite it, plus the soft, marshmallow-like centre. I’m somehow out of red food colouring, so I just left mine plain. You can find the recipe here!

And that brings us to the end of Baked Occasions! In total I made 47 recipes from the book, which includes the ones I tested way back in the Summer of 2013! I just loved baking my way through this book, and here are my Top 10 favourites:

I was busy with other baking projects the past couple months, so I missed out on a bunch of the last recipes on the schedule, plus there were a couple I missed along the way. Here are the recipes I still want to make:

  • Black Cocoa Bundt with Butter Whiskey Glaze
  • Hot Chocolate Pudding Cake
  • Chocolate Pop Tarts with Peanut Butter and Jam Filling
  • Peanut Butter Blossoms

Next up, we’re throwing it back to the very first Baked book! I’ve made a lot out of this book over the years, but I’m excited to bake up some things for the first time. Our first recipe is a pumpkin chocolate chip loaf that’s to die for. I can’t wait!

More Baked Sunday Mornings here!

I, too, cannot believe we’re done, after being with this book from the beginning. I feel bittersweet about it! It’s funny how we generally have similar pastry tastes (at least I think?), but we only have one overlapping favorite, Toffee Coffee Cake Surprise– I always love seeing how the rest of the group likes the recipes. Anyway, it’s always a pleasure cyber-baking with you, my friend. Can’t wait to embark on the BAKED “originals”!
