Why you’ll love these Meringue Bones

  • They’re a fast treat to make for a Halloween party
  • All you need are a few simple ingredients
  • You can make them in advance and store them in an air-tight container

Ingredients Needed

  • Eggs – Use an electric whisk or mixer when combining the eggs with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Cream of tartar – The cream of tartar is what helps the stiff peaks form, indicating that the meringue is mixed well and ready.
  • Salt – Fine salt is best.
  • Sugar – Fine sugar is best.
  • Vanilla extract – Just 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract is needed.

How To Make Scary Simple Meringue Bones

  1. Step One: Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Place brown paper bags or parchment paper on cookie sheets to line it.
  2. Step Two: Use an Egg Separator for three large eggs and put the yolks aside.
  3. Step Three: Using a medium bowl beat the egg whites, ¼ teaspoon of cream of tartar, and ⅙ teaspoon of salt at high speed until the mixture is fluffy.
  4. Step Four: Add ⅔ cup of sugar slowly and then add ½ teaspoon of vanilla to the mixture and beat for another minute to incorporate it.
  5. Step Five: Place the mixture in a piping bag or large plastic bag. Add a plain piping tip to the bag or simply snip off a tiny corner. Pipe out as many three-inch bone shapes onto paper as you can.
  6. Step Six: Bake these ‘bones’ for one hour. Turn off the oven and allow the ‘bones’ to continue drying in the oven for an additional hour.
  7. Step Seven: When they have finished drying, place them in an air-tight container to keep them from becoming soggy. This will make about four to five dozen ‘bones.’
