Spooky Swirled Meringues

A. Why don't I make meringue cookies all the time?
B. Same question.

Spooky and sweet. I am obsessed with these swirled meringues...and they are SO easy to make!
(I almost had Spike pose with one since they match his black and white, but I thought it might be a little much.)

These Halloween meringues are crispy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside, flavored with almond, and oh-so-sweet.

Don't they look like something that would be sold in the Nightmare Before Christmas Bake Shoppe?


You might have come across meringue recipes that call for superfine sugar. Don't go out and buy a bag of it. I use my regular Imperial Extra Fine Granulated Sugar and a little secret that you'll see in the recipe.

Here's all of the equipment you'll need:

Once the meringue is made, simply paint the food coloring in 3 stripes up the piping bag. Fill it with the meringue and you're good to go.

The meringues look super shiny before they're baked. They do dry in the oven and lose some of their intense shine, but still have a pretty sheen.

Can you just imagine switching out the food coloring for different seasons...or sports?  I see lots of meringues in my future. 

Want the recipe? I'm sharing it over at Imperial Sugar today.
Make sure to hop over to get it!

  1. So you only have to add the stripes once and they last that vibrantly the entire time? Definitely need to try and also endless possibilities for other holidays as you mentioned!

    1. Hey Erin! In the recipe, I recommend using two piping bags...all of the meringue won't fit in one bag. The color will fade as you go, but I actually loved having the variation of shades. The black stays vibrant through a lot of piping, though. :)

  3. I would switch out the flavoring to vanilla since I am not an almond fan. Now I am wanting meringues again. I love making them. Nutella is my all time favorite though.

  4. Bridget,
    I've never made meringues but you've inspired me. These look delicious.

  5. I don't know if I'm more impressed by the fabulous striping or the fact that you actually made meringues in Houston! The humidity up here in DFW is sometimes too much for my poor little meringues. I made some the other day and that's the first batch in a while that turned out nice and crispy like they are supposed to be.
