There are always plenty of egg whites in my house and they usually end up being used to make meringues. Last week I decided to make meringue rocky road. This was devoured over the course of the weekend and will be made again without a doubt.
Head straight on to the recipe for Meringue Rocky Road ♥
For quite some time, our airline of choice has been Air France. A few years ago we were headed on a barge trip and the pilots decided to go on strike. Our outgoing flight was moved to British Airways. But Heathrow would not allow us emergency transit entrance. The United Kingdom charges for a transit visa and with the High Commission closed we could not take this route. We left a day later on KLM, their sister airline. This flight was direct from Cape Town to Amsterdam and then on to Paris. This in no way impacted on our barge trip so all was good. Our return flight was via Munich on Lufthansa. Other than the fact we spent a lot of the day in an airport it was not too bad. We were compensated for the inconvenience making our next two trips really cheap.

For our upcoming flight the inbound plane we originally booked on was changed. And then the outgoing plane was changed. First we were on a Boing and now it has changed to the A380. When looking for flights to Italy for next year I saw the notification our seats had been changed. I could not select seats on the App and when I went in on-line to choose new seats I saw that we would be refunded for our initial choice, and had to pay for our new seats. But I could not complete the transaction myself. Knowing how amazingly well Air France respond to tweets I sent a direct message. In the midst of handling flight disruptions my small issue of seat allocation was handled efficiently and quickly. Just about as quickly as this meringue rocky road came together.

What a lovely idea.
Have a great week Tandy.
🙂 Mandy xo
Thank you Mandy 🙂
A brilliant idea. Tandy. I also end up with either egg yolks or egg whites hanging around and I also frequently use the egg whites to make meringues.
I always need more egg yolks!
YUM! I’m a meringue fanatic and this just sounds perfect. It’s so pretty, too 🙂
Thank you Kelsie, and thank you for the visit 🙂
I love the idea of a meringue fudge and am always in the mood for rocky road anything. This looks beautiful!
Thank you Sues 🙂
I’ve never had meringue rocky road, Tandy. This sounds delicious.
Thank you Liz 🙂
Well done on your swift attention to the seating situation. Well done as well on your excellent meringue rocky road. I love the addition of rose petals and pomegranate seeds. You’ve just reminded me I have 3 egg whites left from hollandaise sauce on Sunday night, thank you 8)
Hope you made this Merryn 🙂
This is just plain wicked Tandy-the perfect sugar hit. Glad all ended well with the flights!
Me too Jem 🙂
What a novel way of connecting your trip with this recipe! Also, I can’t wait to try this one!
Hope you enjoy it!
This is such a delicious recipe – perfect for Mothers Day over here in the UK this weekend!
Thanks Lucie 🙂
que merengue mas deliciosos
Thank you 🙂
Great comments about Air France, and an even better meringe, looks so good.
Thanks Evelyne 🙂
I’m loving the sound of this Tandy! And yay to efficient customer service! 😀
Very big yay indeed 🙂
My husband once found this amazing flight connection between Amsterdam and Buenos Aires. But then it turned out that he has a change of planes in USA territory and he had to apply for a transit visa, which costs about 130 euro. Ups. So I get the pain. It’s nice to hear that you’re happy with Air France. I did my last travel with them and I agree. This meringue looks delicious and if it’s fast, there are two reasons to make it!
Yikes, that is really pricey!
Woah! What an incredible idea of making Meringue Rocky Road. I will surely try this.
Wow! not sure how I missed this meringue but it sure sounds amazing, I have never made anything close to this before, will have to make next time I have some extra egg whites.
Let me know how it worked out Cheri 🙂
these meringues look so delicious!?
Thank you Pamela 🙂
This just caught my eye Tandy, If I can find the dried ingredients, what a great way to use up egg whites and delicious.
It is such an easy treat to make and you can change the additions 🙂
