These are so versatile!



When I serve these Elegant Meringue Cups to guests and family, they think I took all day to make such an elegant presentation. The truth is, these couldn't be quicker or easier to make.


The elegant meringue cups have wowed my family and dinner guests time and time again.


They have a light airy texture, a little crunch and filled with the most delicious and creative fillings.


I have used, Nutella and whipped cream with hazelnuts and bananas, which is a favorite.


Fresh fruits and lemon curd as shown and my favorite is fresh red raspberries with raspberry puree and a coconut cream filling or no bake cheesecake filling.


When we have a large gathering, I can make these a day ahead of time. I will make a double batch usually for those who want more than just one.

Make Them A Good Size



I believe this made around 10 nice size cups. The best way to cover these is line them on wax paper and cover the top loosely with a piece of foil.


You don't want to make them get any moisture locked in or they will get soft. I have put them in a plastic bag before and they softened.


I wanted to share that tip with you just in case you tried them ahead of time, even just leaving them on the cookie sheet lightly covered works great.


There is nothing like making something special and it's ruined not knowing ahead of time.


The best part of making these is being creative with filling. I always choose fillings that everyone loves.


My suggestions are just a guideline. Anything that you have created will be perfect fillings for these elegant meringue cups.



Lets get started and impress your guests and family!
