Meringue cookies are one of my all time favorite cookies. I admit that I’m a sucker for chocolate treats, but meringue cookies hold a special place in my heart. This time around I am sharing how I make the cutest Halloween meringue ghosts. Fun and super easy!
They don’t require many ingredients, but they are kinda tricky to make. If the weather is humid they get soggy and inedible. But, when done with just the right weather they are crispy and sweet.

One of the things I love most about meringue cookies is the many variations one can make with them. Think colors, flavors, and textures that can be added into the mix. The possibilities are almost endless.
I use gel base food coloring.
- One way to do this is by brushing lines of your color of choice inside a pastry bag and then adding the meringue mixture.
- Or you can add some color to the meringue mixture and softly swirl to form some waves of colors.
- The last technique using coloring on your meringue cookies is to mix the color completely and turn the white fluffy mixture into the color of your liking.
Colors are not the only variation to these cookies, flavors are too.
- You can add any extract flavoring of your choice.
- Or mini chocolate chips or fudge.
- Even some citrus zest.
Here is my favorite chocolate swirled meringue cookie recipe. Everything about this recipe is perfect.
As far as for Halloween themed cookies goes nothing says Halloween like ghosts or spooky eyes.
Grab candied spooky eyes and stick them on fluffy white clouds of meringue cookies and soon you’ll be seeing ghosts. Not scary at all!
Maybe you want to venture out and make some mummy meringue popsicles. Kids love these popsicles, plus they are amazing treats if you’re hosting a Halloween party.
Imagine a dessert table filled with a variety of treats made with meringue. From ghosts, to mummies to even green blobs. All with spooky eyes or worms sticking out.
Those are just a few ideas of the many ways these cookies can be customized. Here are more easy to make Halloween treats for kids.
