BAYMAX TITLEMeringue Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse: Food Network

Ingredients
2 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
2/3 cup superfine granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or flavored liquor
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (if desired)
Preheat the oven to 350 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until fluffy but not at all dry. (Be careful not to over beat.) Add the sugar gradually, about 3 tablespoons at a time. When 1/2 of the sugar has been added, add the vanilla extract. Continue beating and adding remaining sugar in batches, until all of the sugar is dissolved and the meringue is very shiny and tight. Gently fold in the chocolate chips if using. Working one teaspoon at a time, push a teaspoonful of meringue from the tip of 1 teaspoon with the back of another teaspoon onto the lined baking sheets, leaving 1-inch of space between cookies. Place baking sheets in the preheated oven and turn the oven off. Leave the cookies (undisturbed) in the oven for at least 2 hours and up to overnight, or until cookies are crisp and dry.
MERINGUEOnce your meringues are done, melt chocolate in a ziplock bag in the microwave. I add chocolate to the bag, and zap about 20 seconds at a time until it’s fully melted. Knead the chocolate through the bag to ensure it’s completely melted. Cut off just the tip on one end of the bag to use as your piping tip.CHOCOLATE

I found it’s easier to start with the eyes first, so find a rounded surface you like on the first meringue and add both eyes.

BAYMAX EYESThen you just connect the eyes. Ta da! Baymax

BAYMAX DONEYou can change up the flavor by changing the type of extract you use, I used Grand Marnier, and so mine are orange flavored. If you wanted to make them for Christmas you could use peppermint extract, and even add food coloring to make him red for Baymax in his armor.
