Nigella Lawson just created an incredible new Christmas treat

It's time to get baking.

On last night's episode of At My Table, star chef, Nigella Lawson went and created a brand new Christmas sweet treat that we all need ASAP.

Introducing the Merookie. This meringue-cookie hybrid is a mixture of meringue, chocolate-chip cookies, pistachio shavings and edible glitter all rolled into a chewy, crunchy ball.

"At this time of the year, I like to have something sweet in a tin," she said on last night's episode as she began making her festive treat.

Explaining the consistency of the Merookies, Nigella said they must be chewy, crisp and chocolatey.

Fans watching the show were also drooling at the sight of this latest Christmas invention. Taking to Twitter to discuss, they shared their feelings.

These look simply divine.

If you too want to try these little festive treats this winter, you can find a full video of the recipe below.

Perfect as a snack with tea or coffee after dinner or by yourself in front of the fire (any excuse really).
