  • Place the jelly beans in the food processor and process for one minute, or until finely chopped.

  • Combine the egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; beat until foamy. Increase the speed to high and gradually add ½ cup sugar until stiff and glossy peaks form, about 2 to 3 minutes. Fold in the chopped jelly beans with a rubber spatula.

  • Drop the meringue mixture into mounds on the baking sheet. Bake until firm and dry, 75 to 90 minutes. Cool completely on the baking sheet.

  • Meanwhile, beat the heavy cream in the bowl of a stand mixer until it begins to thicken. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and continue to whip until soft peaks form.

  • Add a dollop of whipped cream to the flat side of 12 of the meringues. Form sandwiches with the remaining 12 meringues.
