{recipe} “Frozen”-Themed Meringue Trees

My son is obsessed with all things Anna, Elsa, and Olaf! He loves the movie Frozen so when we wanted to make meringues, we decided to give them a little bit of Frozen flair by coloring them pale teal with snowy sprinkles.

To get this swirly effect, I made the meringue and then added a small dollop of teal gel food coloring to the mixer. I mixed it just a few times so it wasn’t entirely mixed in. Then I carefully lopped the meringue into a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.

I used a medium-sized star tip to pipe the trees. (Hint: if your star tip is too big, use a needle-nosed pliers to pull the pointy bits closer towards the center.) If the meringue is stiff enough, it is pretty easy to pipe the trees in one motion. A few sprinkles before baking, and you’ve got some tasty meringue trees that Elsa would love!

P.S. If you like these, you might also like my Swirly Valentine Meringue recipe.
