These cute little meringues are fun to decorate and would make a perfect homemade Christmas gift too.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 150C (fan 130C, gas mark 2).

  2. In a large clean bowl add the whites and whisk with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

  3. Very slowly whisk in the sugars with the mixer on a high speed until you have a glossy, voluminous mixture. Fold through the cardamom.

  4. Fit a piping bag with 1cm plain nozzle and fill with the meringue mixture.

  5. Onto two large lined baking sheets pipe Christmas tree shapes by piping a triangle starting at the base with the longest line and decreasing the length of the lines as you go up to the top of the triangle, and then piping a trunk at the bottom.

  6. Place in the oven and turn the heat down straight away to 140C (fan 120C, gas mark 1), and cook for 30 minutes.

  7. Turn the oven off and leave in the oven until cold about 4 hours.

  8. To decorate, melt the chocolate and pipe thin bands across the trees to look like tinsel and sprinkle on the decoration of your choice.
