    Tisme's Note:

    I found this recipe in the New Idea and thought I would post it here for later. These look so good and would be great for a kids party! Snakes can be made one week ahead and stored in an airtight container.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 egg whites
    • 236.59 ml caster sugar
    • 14.79 ml cornflour
    • blue food coloring, to tint
    • soft eating licorice
    • miniature M&M's chocolate candies, to decorate


    1. 1
      Beat whites in a small bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tblsp at a time, beating until dissolved between additions. This process will take about 10 minutes. Beat in cornflour and tint mixture with food colouring.
    2. 2
      Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm-fluted nozzle. Pipe 16cm-long snake shapes, 4cm-apart, on oven trays lined with baking paper.
    3. 3
      To decorate snakes, cut forked tongues from licorice using a small sharp knife and lightly press into front of meringue heads. Lightly press M&M's on top of heads for eyes.
    4. 4
      Cook in a very slow oven (120C) for about 40 minutes, swapping trays halfway through cooking, or until firm to touch.
    5. 5
      Cool trays in oven with door slightly ajar.
