Halloween Ghost Meringues

Akshita Nair, Staff Writer

It’s the spookiest time of the year again, and what better way to spend it than eating unhealthy junk food while watching R-rated Horror movies? For this special occasion, we have the perfect treats: Bite-Sized Ghost Meringues. Not only are these desserts small and cute, but they are incredibly easy to make!


  • 2 Egg Whites
  • Lemon Juice or Cream of Tartar
  • 7 Tablespoons of Sugar (can add or less based on your taste)
  • Melted chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Have baking trays readily lined with pastry paper.
  2. Whisk eggs whites and lemon juice (or cream of tartar) together in a bowl it becomes white and stiff peaks form(be sure not to overmix!). Add sugar a tablespoon at a time to lessen the whisking time.
  3. Transfer meringue to a piping bag. Pipe 12 dollops onto the remaining baking sheet to resemble ghosts or bones.
  4. Bake in the preheated for about 1 hour until firm. After they are done baking, turn off the oven, close the door, and cool until completely dried, which should take approximately 1 hour.
  5. Dip the tip of a toothpick into melted chocolate and dot chocolate “eyes” on each of the ghosts.

And with that, your little ghost buddies are ready to eat. Enjoy!
