How to Make Valentine Meringue Pops

Follow along as Darlene, a.k.a. The Cakelady, shows you how to make precious Valentine Meringue Pops. We especially like her unique method for achieving multi-toned meringues. 

Watch as she fills the bag with pink meringue, then dispenses it, before filling the bag with white meringue and piping.

This tutorial will show you how to make Meringue Pops.

These were very easy to make and were so pretty. However, the taste was a little bland for me. Next time, I will add some vanilla or perhaps strawberry flavoring.


I agree with the flavor, however white peppermint won't distort the white meringue making it easier to color!


@Redingmc ‍ cream of tartar is een soort van bakpoeder, hebben ze meestal wel in een Surinaamse/indische toko, maar dr oetker heeft het ook. Het is echt net wat anders als gewoon bakpoeder of baksoda, en is eigenlijk niet echt te vervangen in dit recept. room van tandsteen is een antwoord van een vertaalprogamma hihihi.

Hi, I would like to ask,is it possible to insert the lollypop stick into the merengue before baking? thus you won'need to melt the chocolate, etc. 


Although I have not tried inserting the stick before baking, I have seen some bakers have done this with a cookie.   One thing to consider though is that inserting a stick will take up more space in the pan.  


You can leave out the cream of tartar if you don't have it but just be careful that you don't overwhip the eggwhites til it's dry.   I wouldn't add baking soda or powder to replace it.
