I know we are already on the second day but, HAPPY OCTOBER GUYS! In honor of our Pinterest dessert week as well as the spo0kiest month of the year, I decided to bring you the cutest, most spo0ky, ghost meringues.
I personally love love meringues and if you haven’t tried them, you seriously must! They are so light and delicious and the spo0ky addition just puts them through the roof. Make them for yourself, your family, a party or literally anything. Who wouldn’t want to try these the second they saw them?!
I went ahead and used the same recipe for meringues as in my “making meringue cookies” post
& I wanted to make this recipe as simple as possible so for the eyes and the mouth I just melted a couple Hershey’s kisses that I had laying around and melted them down and added them to a ziplock bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner to make the little faces.
Look at these stiff peaks! This is how your meringue should look before piping your little ghosts.
Before the oven..
So this is a good time to tell you I had a bit of a dilemma. I cooked my meringues at 235 for an hour and a half and I let them cool overnight in the oven. When I checked on them in the morning they were sticky and I was sad lol. I popped them back in the oven at 250 for 30 more minutes and let them cool and as soon as I took a bite into one, it was perfect.
The only thing was is they got a little brown 😔 probably because they were on the top rack and the oven probably could of been a bit lower in temperature. Sooooo, my little ghosts came out with a bit of a tan lol.
Once they got their cute little faces I couldn’t even be upset. Look how cute!
Overall, They turned out delicious, and adorable! They gave me a bit of trouble but if you’re willing to give it a try the end result is worth the extra effort!
