These Meringue Ghost Cookies for Halloween are so easy to make; little hands can help. The perfect treat for kids of all ages!
A couple of weeks ago I got together with a friend who also blogs; she and I had plans to make cocktails for today’s Progressive Eats event and we were going to do it right…dry ice and spooky all around. Well…what the heck happened Barb? Timing happened! I didn’t get to my cocktail until the next day; my Friday Cocktails weekly post was only 2 days away and well, doesn’t take much imagination to figure out I punted.
The spooky good Ghost in the Graveyard Cocktail was published last Friday for Friday Cocktails and I was back to square one. My friend Ansh from Spiceroots persevered though and her cocktail contribution is fitting for the theme she chose as this month’s host, A Spooktacular Halloween Party. Be sure to check out her and other’s contributions after the recipe. Yes, we are a bit late; someone put a spell on us! Still, these cookies? So easy; three ingredients including the chocolate chip eyes. Mix up some meringue and let them dry in a 200 degree oven for a couple of hours and voila…done!
I started making these Meringue Christmas Tree Cookies years ago for the Christmas Holiday; I love how easily they segued to Halloween. These were much easier too…no glitter or stars, just a couple of mini chocolate chips inserted bottom side out; regular chocolate chips would work too. I had some little hands helping so plan on someone getting very sticky…but we had fun!
These Meringue Ghost Cookies for Halloween are really so perfect; meringue cookies literally melt in your mouth. Doesn’t that seem most appropriate for a ghost? BOO!!
