Meringue Bones and Ghosts
Ingredients2 h 15 m servings 87
- Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
- Whisk eggs whites and lemon juice together in a bowl until thick, white, and foamy. Add sugar a spoonful at a time, whisking constantly, until meringue is shiny, thick, and holds its shape.
- Transfer meringue to a piping bag. Pipe 12 bone shapes onto a prepared baking sheet. Pipe 12 puffs to resemble ghosts onto the remaining baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven until dried and firm, about 1 hour. Turn off the oven, close the door, and cool until completely dried, about 1 hour more.
- Dip the tip of a toothpick into melted chocolate and dot chocolate "eyes" on each of the ghosts.
- Cook's Notes:
- You can use 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar in place of the lemon juice, if desired. You can use any type of melted chocolate instead of the semisweet chocolate chips, if desired.

I made it before Halloween to test it and held perfectly. It tasted sweet, but not over-powering. I will be proud to serve these at my Halloween party later in the month! I hope other people try...
Such an easy recipe! Watching the video was helpful, and using an electric mixer made it even easier.
They were AMAZING!!! I definitely recommend this! I added food coloring to half of the uncooked meringue, and made them into flowers.
Maybe I have weak arms, but this was impossible for me to whisk by hand. I only have a hand-held mixer so I had to use that for a good 15 minutes to get the mixture nice and fluffy. My sore arms...
I have always wanted to try merengues and this recipe was just right! Beating the eggs by hand proved to be too much for me. I had to enlist my husbands help and I ended up getting out the el...
