Halloween Meringue Bones

Halloween treats for monsters both little and large.  

Makes around 16 (Serves 2 as a snack)

Ingredients

  • 115g icing sugar
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 160g Two Chicks egg whites

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 120°C, fan 140°C and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper or a silicone mat.
  • In a mixing bowl (metal or glass) using a hand or stand mixer, beat the egg whites to stiff peak stage.
  • Turn the speed up and (1 tbsp at a time) add and incorporate the caster sugar, leaving a few moments between each spoonful so it’s fully combined and doesn’t separate later.
  • Once the mix is thick and glossy, sift in a third of the icing sugar, and use a spatula to fold in, do this with the remaining two thirds.
  • The mix should look smooth and billowy. Push the meringue into a piping bag with the round nozzle and pipe out the shapes of bones onto the mat.
  • Feeling creative? Why not change the nozzle and try some spiderwebs, broomsticks or witches hats.
  • Place in the oven for 45 minutes, and after an hour reduce the temperature to 100°C, fan 120°C leaving the door open for a few minutes for the temperature to drop.
  • Cook for a further 1 hour before removing and leaving to cool.
