I decided to make some holiday meringues tonight and have made these for years - a simple recipe. I usually chop up some peppermint candy and sprinkle to the tops for flavor and a little eye candy. Usually I have the cheap candy canes around but tonight I had some high end all natural hand made peppermint candy so I figured that would be better. WRONG!
The natural organic handmade candy was made of cane sugar and melted in the oven - they look like Santa sneezed on them. The cheap candy made with corn syrup held up well. Lesson learned - use the cheap stuff ;)
