Easy and delicious! I only tried this as I had some left-over egg whites from a creme brulee that I had made. I only had 150gms of coconut but they were fine. Will make again but next time I will halve the amount as it made about 50! - 24 Sep 2014


Loved these really easy to make - 04 Jun 2016


I made these to just use up egg whites but messed them up so would be unfair to mark it down as they tasted okay, just looked awful! - 28 Mar 2015
