Almond Meringue Ghost Cookies

Share

I love these Almond Meringue Ghost Cookies for Halloween. This recipe makes a large batch of 45 cookies, so they are perfect for a child’s class Halloween party. I am planning to bag these to give out as treats to trick or treaters this year.

To make these cute cookies, start by making the meringue base by mixing egg whites with sugar gradually. Once the meringue is prepared, transfer it to a pastry bag fitted with a large piping nozzle. You can use a zip lock bag with the corner snipped off if you don’t have a pastry bag and nozzle. Pipe meringue onto the prepared baking sheets, swirling as you pipe to form a ghost shape. Bake in the oven and after 1½ hours, turn the oven off and cool meringues in the closed oven for 1½ hours until dry. Melt chocolate chips in a small plastic bag. Snip off a corner of the bag and squeeze out chocolate eyes and mouths.
