Blueberry Meringues

If you have a sweet tooth like I do, then you should think about adding these delights to a luncheon or summer party. They are colourful, chewy and so easy to make. I have used blueberry syrup for these but they could easily be made using a raspberry, blackberry or for you Canadians-Saskatoon berry syrup as well. All credits go to ahappyfooddance for these little treats.

  1. I don’t think they would freeze well. They are the best right after you make them. I had them in a container overnight and definitely not as chewy or soft on Day 2…
