Instructions:

  1. Prepare the sugar syrup:

    • Transfer the meringue mixture to a piping bag fitted with a perforated nozzle. Arrange the meringue on the waffle bases or on the biscuits.
    • Place a spoonful of lemon curd in the center of each meringue using a piping bag fitted with a filling tip.

    • Refrigerate the mousse kisses while you prepare the chocolate coating.
