Whoops! Long time no blog ... sorry friends :) Combine planning a rehearsal dinner with a wedding, and planning a festival, plus writing articles galore and my head is spinning! I miss all my blog friends and plan to catch up on my blog stalking later this week. Forgive me?
SO...I have a quick blog post for tonight. I saw these ghostly treats in the Food Network magazine and thought they were so cute and easy! I plan to make them for Halloween if I have time! I love meringues and these are definitely the cutest ghosts ever. Not scary at all...maybe scary delicious...muah-ha-ha.
- 3 large egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until frothy. Beat in the sugar; increase the mixer speed to high and beat until stiff peaks form, 5 to 6 minutes.
Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe 8 to 10 swirls on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until dry, 1 hour to 1 hour, 15 minutes. Transfer the baking sheet to a rack and let cool completely.
Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on 50 percent power until melted, about 1 minute, stirring halfway. Transfer the melted chocolate to a zip-top bag and snip a corner. Pipe the chocolate on the meringues to look like eyes.
