Ghosts should always be on the guest list for Halloween celebrations. These spook-tacular treats use mini chocolate chips for eyes to achieve a truer-than-life look. Put these ghoulishly good meringues out for grabs, and your hungry little goblins will be thrilled as ever.


How to Make It

Step 1

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves (2 to 4 minutes). Add extract; beat until blended.

Step 2

Spoon mixture into a zip-top plastic bag; snip a small hole in 1 corner, and pipe mixture into ghostly shapes on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Add mini morsels for eyes.

Step 3

Bake at 200° for 2 hours. Turn oven off, and let meringues stand in closed oven with light on 8 hours.
