Perfect for a mint for after dinner and a nice crunch in place of a cookie. I loved the green color and the colorful sparkles I'd put on top - thanks!

I made these while I was gestational diabetic and dying for sweets. I used all alternate sugars (Splenda and Stevia Plus) and it was NOT good! I would not recommend doing this, as it gave the meringues a very bitter flavor and after taste. I'm betting if you stick to the original recipe these will taste much better!

I beat them til foamy, but I think it should have been until stiff? I could not get these to stiff after adding the sugar and what not and it just didn't turn out right. I didn't add the extract but blended up some red hots and mixed them in, the taste was great, but again, the texture was wrong.

So with much trepidation, after I had the perfect, shiny, sugary meringue, I slowly added a container of peach puree (yes, baby food) just to see if it would work. IT DID! They are in the oven now, but I can't wait to see if the peach taste is noticeable. I didn't even add cream of tartar, just salt (obviously, I left out the mint too...). Anyway, thanks for a foolproof base recipe (if I bake them correctly, that is).

I made these today for our house and two neighbors. They were delicious. I made mine quite small and dusted them with two different color sugars. Very good idea. You could also lower the sugar or possibly add splenda? Thanks for the post. Lori L PS. my DH loved them!!!

Yummy! These melt in your mouth... we used almond flavoring instead of mint.. tastes great! Easy to make. Thanks so much!

How unique! These were fun. Mine ended up a little flatter (I think I could have beat them more). But they were little, crunchy & minty. A friend said "breath mints!" Neat. I liked them & I think I will take one of the other suggestions and try different flavors. I don't know if they can beat the mint though. There is something about it...

I've never made meringues before and these were quite easy to make! I love mint--but made them using vanilla extract as that's what everyone wanted! I tinted them pink for Easter. They were delicious. I used the ziplock bag to pipe them onto the baking sheets which I lined with parchment. A great recipe that I will make again. I used a Kithen Aid electric mixer--which made things very easy.

Very easy with elegant results. I always make special treats on holiday's and my children had never had meringues before -- they loved them. They kept asking if we were having company.
