  • 1/4 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon miniature semisweet chocolate chips

    Use disposable decorating bag or gallon-sized resealable food storage plastic bag with 1/2-inch hole cut in bottom corner. Spoon meringue into bag; twist top to partially close bag.

Expert Tips

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Cold eggs separate easily, while room temperature egg whites beat to their highest volume. Let the eggs whites stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes before beating them.
  • Meringue become tough if it absorbs moisture; store these "ghosts" in a loosely covered container at room temperature. If the humidity is high, transfer them to a tightly covered container.
