Spooky Meringue Bones Treats For Halloween

Halloween is in full swing at our house now. This weekend we plan to go to our favorite Pumpkin Patch and do some serious pumpkin picking. We have decorated our house with duly appointed skeletons, bats, ghosts and cobwebs. So in the spirit of Halloween, here is a treat that is pretty easy to make and is a lot of fun to eat!

You'll need-
3 cold large egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract
Ground chocolate wafer cookies

Beat egg whites with cream of tartar in a large bowl with mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. On high speed, gradually add sugar, a Tbsp at a time, and extract; beat 8 minutes or until stiff glossy peaks form and mixture no longer feels grainy.

Then spoon the meringue mixture into a large plastic baggie (the freezer baggies work well). Next snip the one corner of the bag, and now squeeze out the mixture into shapes of bones (making different sizes and shapes) onto foil lined baking sheets.

Bake 2 hours or until "bones" feel firm. Turn off oven; leave the "bones" in oven 2 hours or overnight until crisp and dry.

Layer a plate with cookie crumbs to look like dirt,and arrange the meringue bones on top.
