Army of little ghosts ~ coconut meringues

There was a halloween lunch party at work today. Was recking my brains over what to make – should I do witches’ fingers? Or should I do a dark chocolate pie, with an evil face on it?

In the end, inspiration struck from here and here. Both have been in my to-do list for a while. And it gave birth to this:

See more little guys here :D

The first time I made this, it was a mixture of half coconut and almonds flour (because I forgot I only had 100g of coconut, and already used 15g of it previously!). Frankly, I like that batch better than when I followed the recipe exactly – it remained so moist! So here’s my take on the coconut meringues ;)

Coconut Meringues
Makes about 32 1-inch meringues

175g dessicated coconut
100g almond flour
2 egg whites
100g sugar
1 tsp pandan extract

Mix coconut, almond flour together.

In another bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Add the sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Add in the pandan extract.

Mix the egg white into the coconut and almond mixture.

Shape into whatever you fancy and bake at 150 degrees. My little ghosts were done in about 15 minutes, they’re about 1 inch in wide ;)

Have fun and happy Halloween!
