    2 teaspoons meringue powder
    1 tablespoon water
    Green food coloring
    Yellow food coloring

Step 1: Make the Royal Icing

To create the royal icing, mix together the meringue powder, powdered sugar, and water. If you’re using a mixer, start the speed out slow so the powdered sugar doesn’t explode everywhere.  You’ll want the icing pretty thick. If it’s too thick, just add a tiny bit more water.

Scoop most of the icing into another bowl, leaving a few tablespoons. Add a few drops of the green food coloring to the majority of the royal icing and mix. Add a couple of drops of yellow food coloring to make it a brighter green, and mix.

Step 2: Prepare the Frosting Bag

Scoop the icing into the plastic bag.

Seal the bag, and snip off one of the corners.

Step 3: Frost the Tops

Frost the tops of your Kit-Kats, the amount of "life" depending on your fancy.

Use a toothpick to help nudge the color into its proper place.

Step 4: Writing the Text
