- 2 large egg whites, at room temperature
- ½ cup sugar
This three-ingredient treat is genius: it’s cute, it’s colorful, and it will use up all of the kids’ leftover Skittles. Have the kids help you make the meringues—they’ll have fun watching the egg whites transform into stiff, glossy peaks. The key to a perfect meringue is baking low and slow—that is, keeping the oven temperature low, and baking for 1½ to 2 hours. This technique ensures that the meringues have a crisp outer coating and a slightly chewy center. Use this recipe throughout the year with whatever ingredients you want to use up, whether it’s a handful of nuts or leftover chocolate chips.
