I made these last night in smaller form (this recipe for me yielded 16 small meringues) for a pre-Valentine's day party with friends. I baked 30 minutes to adjust for the size change so they would stay mallow-y in the middle, and before I baked I made tiny central indents which, out of the oven, I filled with whipped cream. We sprinkled strawberry pop-rocks on top and served with pink champagne and it was very cute!
