Edible Snowmen-EAT Without the Fear of Yellow Snow

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.

Ah -- my mom used to make schaum tortes. How cool to be creative with baby schaum tortes!

Marcia: Making and eating things our Moms used to make is one of the joys of the holidays :)
