Looking for a fine powder finish.
Whip the egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, vanilla until soft peaks form. (Use a stand or hand mixer on high). While beating, add about a tablespoon of sugar at a time.

Sift out larger pieces and strawberry seeds. Now gently fold HALF of the strawberries it into your meringue.

Start from the center. Get your swirl on... 🌀 Here's a Tip - These don't spread during baking so go ahead and place these close to one another on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle with the remaining strawberry powder and bake! Preheated 200 degree oven for 2 hours. Then turn your oven off and dry for 2 hours. And what's that peeking out from the bottom?!?! Well...
Why yes, that's chocolate. Good eye! After your meringues are dry, melt chocolate in a small bowl and evenly spread the back of the meringues. Place back on your sheet pan to set about 30 min.
Nothing left to do but enjoy! These do best when stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
