Introduction: Cotton Candy Meringues

I was sitting in my house one afternoon when I had a brilliant idea: what if I used cotton candy sugar to make meringues? So of course I had to try it (and they were delicious).

Ingredients:

-1/4 tsp cream of tartar

- 3 eggs (whites)

-1/2 cup cotton candy sugar

-1/4 cup cotton candy sugar

Prep:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Cover a large cookie sheet in parchment paper (DO NOT grease, and DO NOT use wax paper.)

Step 1: Eggs and Tartar

Separate egg yolks from whites. In a mixing bowl, put the whites and the cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer until the mixture is white and frothy with tiny bubbles.

Step 2: Sugar and Peaks

Add granulated sugar and cotton candy sugar gradually while beating on medium-high until peaks form.

Step 3: Piping

Use a piping bag, or cut the corner off of a gallon-size Ziploc bag. Put all the batter into the bag and pipe onto the covered cookie sheet. Bake at 200 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours. After 1 1/2 hours, turn off the oven (DO NOT open it) and leave the meringues in the oven until they are hardened and cool (at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight).

Enjoy your carnival confectioneries!

    Yum! Always wanted to try unicorn poop :)

    Oh my diabetic Dieties! You're going to kill someone with these, and what a way to go. Genius!

    I love everything cotton candy, can't wait to try this. I mean even the smell sends me higher than life. I have a few candles scented of it.

    Cool thx for sharing with all of us

    This is awesome!! Those are two of my favorite things I I can't believe I never thought of putting them together... Although I'm afraid that I'm going to have to blame you for my sugar coma.
