What You’ll Need:
3 egg whites (room temperature)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
Orange jimmies (look for the long ones), or orange sprinkles
What to Do:
Preheat oven to 200°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In the clean bowl of a mixer with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites, vanilla, cream of tartar, and salt on medium until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add sugar, about 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight).
Carefully spoon meringue into a new disposable pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe meringue into snowmen shapes about 1 1/4 inches tall, piping 2 to 3 balls that are larger at the bottom and get smaller toward the top. Carefully place one orange jimmy in each snowman for a nose.
Bake 1 hour or until meringues are set but not quite firm. Turn oven off and let meringue cookies stand in oven 30 minutes. Carefully remove cookies from parchment. Cool on wire racks. Dip the end of a lollipop stick or toothpick in melted chocolate, and dot the face and buttons.
