Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/4 Teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 Cups sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 Cups Heath toffee bits
  • 1 Cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whip the egg whites and lemon juice to soft peaks. With the mixer on medium, add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, then add the vanilla. Increase the mixer speed to high and beat to stiff, glossy peaks. Using a spatula, gently fold the toffee bits and nuts into the egg whites.

Using a level medium (1½-tablespoon size) cookie scoop, drop scoops of meringue on the prepared cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Transfer to the oven and bake for 30 minutes, rotating the cookie sheets on the oven racks halfway through the baking time. Turn the oven off and let the meringues sit in the oven for at least 1 hour to cool and set.

Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.

Toffee Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Toffee Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
