Yumilicious Little Men Made from Meringue
Okay maybe they look more like ghosts than snowmen but it was my first attempt - so at least I have a fancy food idea for next Halloween.
All it takes is three egg whites and 1 and 1/2 cups of sugar. You heat the sugar and egg whites over low heat until the sugar dissolves.
And then you whip it until it forms little peaks (about 3-5 minutes).
Then you plop dollops onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
And bake at 175 for one hour and thirty minutes. WAH-LAH! Little snowmen you can stack together and decorate with cranraisins - if you want red little ghosty eyes, or chocolate chips if you want snowmen. I also added a little almond extract to my mixture - for some added flavoring, but you could add lemon, orange or peppermint-whatever suits you.
