{to sigh for | meringue mushrooms}

I saw this little Meringue Mushroom on Etsy and fell in love. Heather Baird is one smart cookie. Take a look at this lovely little guy. And if you want to see how it's made, click here.

"Made of baked meringue cookies and assembled with dots of melted chocolate, these little red cap mushrooms make for a friendly place setting at the Thanksgiving table, and they’re a sweet treat to boot! Just for fun, the mushroom “stems” are dipped in cocoa and matcha tea powders for a freshly foraged appearance, and white nonpareils create a spotty cap. For an extra warm, woodsy presentation, place them on top of ground green pistachios or shelled pumpkin seeds.

And best of all, baked meringues are naturally gluten-free. If you have guests with this dietary consideration, make sure to use gluten-free chocolate chips (such as Enjoy Life brand) and cocoa powder. Many brands of nonpareils and powdered food color are gluten-free, but some are not, so choose these ingredients with care."
