ghostly meringue boos

Makes 20 to 24 whimsical little boos

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup superfine sugar (or 1 cup gran sugar spun in food processor)
  • 2 each chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla on medium speed until thick and foamy.
  4. Add sugar, a tablespoon at a time until thick, shiny and stiff peaks form, about 6 minutes.
  5. Transfer meringue to piping bag with 1/2″ plain tip and pipe ghosts on your parchment paper.
  6. Bake 1.5 hours, until firm and dry to the touch.
  7. Leaving your little boos inside, close the door and turn off oven. Let the meringues set inside the oven for a few hours or even overnight, as they need to dry all the way through.
  8. When your ghosties are ready, melt the chocolate chips and dip a toothpick in the melted chocolate for eyes, nose and mouth. Or pipe faces with icing.
