Tote these sweet, friendly little ghosts to a Halloween party or tuck them into your kids' lunch bags for a ghoulish midday treat. Baking the meringue at a low heat prevents the chocolate from melting.

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 120 mini chocolate chips

Method

In large bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Beat in sugar, 2 tbsp at a time; beat in vanilla until stiff glossy peaks form.

Using piping bag fitted with 3/4-inch (2 cm) round tip, pipe mixture into 1-inch (2.5 cm) mounds on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Place 2 chocolatechips on each meringue for eyes.

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 200 F (100 C) oven, switching and rotating
pans halfway through, until dry, about 1-1/2 hours. Turn off oven; let stand in oven for 1 hour. Let cool on pans on racks.

Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store for up to 1 week.
