Snow Capped Meringue Brownie Bites

One of my cute nieces and she is rather cute came over for a visit and stayed most of the afternoon.

I had picked up some ready made mini meringues from the supermarket for a speedy dessert with fruit and whipped cream, but the niece hinted for brownies. I couldn't say no to that beautiful face.    

We topped the Brownies with some mini meringues dubbed as snow.  
She normally likes her brownies plain and pure, without fruit or any other fancy toppings, but was rather forgiving of these mini meringues.  D thought it was a slightly odd combination, but welcomed them with a dollop of whipped cream. 
I am sharing these with Tin and Thyme for We Should Cocoa .

  2. I'd love some brownies - we had leftover cake at work today and I offered it to some of my colleagues before checking it out and then I realised the first person had taken the last brownie and I had to be content with seed slice so this brownie is making me wish for that slice I missed out on - but yours looks much cuter with those meringue toppers!

    1. Oh what a shame you missed out. Glad you liked these, these did work better with whipped cream though. The niece is coming over next week and want to make bath bombs, so I will be using your recipe for this as its the simplest - if you have any advice, let me know.

  4. Your niece is very lucky :-) These look both cute and tasty. Better snow in this form than the real thing, too!

  5. Ah, you seem to have lots of lovely nieces and nephews Shaheen. I'd not really thought of a brownie meringue combination, but I'd be willing to give it a go :) Thanks for sharing with #WeShouldCocoa and Happy Easter.
