Sophie and I had a blast yesterday making our merengue ghosts!  They turned out so sweetly, I decided to showcase one in one of Lauren’s new Timeless Templates!  Lauren has done such an incredible job with these templates and they can be yours for such an incredibly cheap price…printable and SO fast (plus you get never-before-seen projects from the girls on the PTI team with full color pics and supplies!  Gotta love that!  Well…here is ANOTHER idea!  I just love everything about this!  John said it was his favorite project from me so far!  I think he was almost in tears!  (Just kidding…but maybe he should have been;) )  I mean how perfect would this be for teachers this week on Friday!  How fun!  I am going to leave you with my merengue recipe so you can do this as well!  Go make them…you already have all of the ingredients!  Your kids will be thrilled!

Merengue Recipe:

4 egg whites in mixing bowl add 1tsp. Cream of Tartar

Beat until stiff peaks form

While beating, slowly add between 3/4 cups and 1 cup of sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)

Fill piping bag with merengue (or ziplock bag with bottom corner snipped off) pick favorite piping bag tip.

Pipe on brown paper grocery bag or parchment paper in concentric circles making sure when you get to the top to add a little ghost flip for the top!

Add mini chocolate chips for the eyes

put paper in the oven and bake at 250 degrees for two hours at least.  You are essentially just “drying out” the meregue, not baking it per se.
