Ingredients You'll Need
3 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup NESTLE NESQUIK Very Vanilla Flavor Powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 lollipop sticks
24 Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels
PREHEAT oven to 200° F.
Lightly grease and flour baking sheets.
BEAT egg whites, salt and cream of tartar in small mixer bowl until soft peaks form.
Gradually add Nesquik, sugar and vanilla extract; beat until stiff peaks form and mixture is glossy.
Spoon meringue into gallon-size heavy plastic bag, then cut a 1/4" wide opening at the tip.
PLACE sticks about 6 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
Pipe meringue onto baking sheets into ghostly shapes about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, 3 to 4 inches wide and 4 to 6 inches long. To make eyes, lightly press morsels into meringues.
BAKE for 1 hour, 15 minutes or until meringues are firm to the touch.
Turn oven off. Allow meringues to cool in oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven. Slide spatula under meringues to release.
Store at room temperature in airtight container for up to 3 days.
NOTE: This is what I would do: I would line cookie sheet with parchment paper and draw the ghosts according to the dimensions above. Then pipe the meringue into the outline. Finally, insert the stick in the bottom 3rd of the ghost.
