  • Summary

    Meringue is easy to form when wet but holds its shape after baking, so it's ideal for creating pastries in fanciful shapes. Chef Michel Richard, of Citronelle in Washington, D.C., uses meringue to build these charming snowmen, which are filled with chocolate mousse and decorated with marzipan hats and scarves.

    Ingredients

    • 8 large egg whites
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar, plus more for decorating
    • Pearl sugar, for sprinkling
    • Red food coloring
    • 13 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
    • 2 cups heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks
    • 11 ounces almond paste
