ingredients

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

directions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cook in a very slow oven (120C) for about 40 minutes, swapping trays halfway through cooking, or until firm to touch.
  • Cool trays in oven with door slightly ajar.
