These are fantastic! This recipe is incredibly easy, it did take a little bit of time to assemble the mushrooms but it was fun. And the end result is well worth it. I made a test run of these and took them to work so my co-workers could try them (they love being guinea pigs!) Everyone raved about them and couldn't believe that they were not real mushrooms. Several people asked for the recipe. I had a few minor problems while baking these, which was on my end. I was able to pipe the caps, but when trying to pipe the stems the meringue was really runny and wouldn't hold its shape. I was able to easily remedy this by putting it back into the bowl and whisking it until it was really fluffy. Also, at an hour and at 225 degrees my meringues turned really brown. I think next time I will lower the temp to 200 degrees and bake slightly longer. I think I might also cut back on the sugar because they are really sweet as is. I did one thing differently and used white chocolate as well. After applying melted semi-sweet chocolate to the caps, I let it set for a few minutes then applied a layer of melted white chocolate. Then I made the "gills" with a tooth pick. I will definitely be making this recipe again, putting this in my Christmas favorites file!
