Meringues always remind me of cotton candy, with their melt-in-your-mouth kind of sensation (minus the fun fair atmosphere and sticky-finger kids running around).
With the addition of chocolate and some subtle booze (I chose amaretto, but go with whatever favorite dessert liqueur you want or have on hand), they also happen to make a great Valentine's Day treat.
Don't be scared off by the egg white beating or the pastry bag piping — they're both much simpler than they seem, and once you (or your sweetie) taste the first one, you'll be glad you gave them a shot.
