Halloween Themed Meringue Kisses tower

Updated: Nov 6, 2020




I love anything Meringue, and these Meringue kisses are pure joy! They are crispy on the outside soft on the inside and look as good as they taste. You can customize them and the possibilities are endless. This Meringue tower is a real beauty!

There is enough meringue in this recipe so I piped some striped kisses, striped star swirls, white kisses with sprinkles and plain white ones that I painted with gold luster dust. The combination of these on the tower came together very nicely.

The cookies can be served as is but these Meringue towers are so much fun to put together. They add some height to the table and are just stunning!
