A festive and easy Halloween treat to prepare for your guests is Boozy Ghost Meringues. Although the recipe only consists of four ingredients, it's sure to make an impact on your guests. You won't need any food coloring to make the ghost meringues, but if you choose to bake the candy corn meringues, make sure to have yellow and orange food coloring nearby.
Boozy Ghost Meringues (Yields 1 Dozen)
1 Cup Egg Whites
1 ¾ Cup Sugar
¼ Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Vodka (Optional)
Whisk egg whites and cream of tartar with a mixer on medium-low speed until foamy. Add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking until sugar dissolves and soft peaks form. Gradually increase speed to medium-high, add vanilla and vodka and whisk until stiff peaks form, 8 to 10 minutes.
Add food color to make colors for candy corn or no color for ghosts. Pipe out onto parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 200 °F until meringues are completely dry. Use black food color to add eyes and mouth to ghosts.
