    Annacia's Note:

    These peppermint-flavored meringues are virtually fat-free and they're fun to eat, too, because they melt like magic on your tongue.

      My first try failed miserably and not sure about my second set so please don't hold the photo against me! The flavor was amazing though and the DS's and DD ate them right up! Made for Photo Tag.

      This was a very quick and easy recipe to do. The amount of peppermint extract was perfect...not too strong and I added some red food coloring to turn the meringue pink. I placed mine on a silicon baking pan. Very easy to remove and very pretty. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
