Course Dessert


  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tarter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Mini Candy Canes, finely crushed
  • Peppermint Hershey's Kisses


  1. Preheat oven to 250˚

  2. In a mixing bowl whisk Egg Whites until foamy and forming soft peaks, 3-5 minutes at medium speed if using a mixer.

  3. Add the Vanilla, Salt and Cream of Tartar and whisk until stiff peaks form, 3-5 minutes at high speed if using a mixer.

  4. Slowly whisk in the Sugar, if using a mixer at medium-high speed should take about 1-1 ½ minutes.

  5. Put the meringue into a pastry bag with a star tip.

  6. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Unwrap and place Hershey’s Peppermint Kisses on the parchment about 2 inches apart.

  7. Pipe meringue around the bottom of the kisses and then swirl to the top all in one motion.

  8. Sprinkle a small amount of crushed Candy Cane over the cookies.

  9. Place into the oven at 250˚ and immediately reduce the heat to 175˚.

  10. Bake for 3 hours then turn off the heat and let cool in the oven another 45-60 minutes. This prevents them from cracking.

  11. Remove and let cool.
