I love meringues, and these no-bake are the easiest ever! Make this holiday season for friends and family. Perfect stocking stuffers or housewarming gifts. Bring to the office and be a favorite colleague!
3 tablespoons meringue powder
4 cups (1 lb) powdered sugar
6+ tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the meringue powder, powdered sugar, water and extract until stiff peaks form and icing loses its sheen (about 10 minutes). Divide into separate containers, depending on how many colors you plan to use. Mix in food coloring with rubber spatulas. Keep covered until ready to use.
Prepare piping bags with round tips. Place each color of icing into one bag each. Pipe dots onto parchment paper. Allow dots to dry overnight in the open air overnight. Peel off of parchment paper and serve.
