Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 dozen
  • ½ teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 4 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Candy Eyes, for decorating
  • Black frosting gel (like this one)
  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚ degrees
  2. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat
  3. Place the cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment
  4. Pour your room temperature egg whites over it, turn the mixer on low and let them mix together
  5. Slowly increase the speed to medium and beat until the mixture is foamy
  6. Slowly increase the speed to high and beat until soft peaks form
  7. Slowly add the sugar one Tablespoon at a time, beating well between each addition
  8. Beat until stiff peaks form and it looks glossy
  9. Add the vanilla and beat it in for about 30 seconds
  10. Cut the tip off of a disposable icing bag(See Note Below) and fit it with a one-inch tip, you can use bigger or smaller tips too-you can also just use a bag without a tip, they work just fine that way too
  11. Pipe your Boos on the prepared sheets, you can put them close together because they don’t spread very much
  12. Fill your sheets with them, make sure the bottom is wider than the top and pull up while you stop squeezing the piping bag to make a little point
  13. Add the candy eyes now, they don’t have to be perfect, in fact, they’re more fun if you make them silly
  14. Bake the trays for 60 minutes, rotating them halfway through
  15. If you bake in the lower portion of the oven you won’t get browned ghosts
  16. Once they’re baked turn off the door let the ghosts cool in the oven for 60 minutes
  17. Remove them from the oven and let cool completely
  18. Once they’re cool add eyes and a mouth, as desired
  19. Make these the day you plan on consuming them. Enjoy!
NOTE: If you don’t have an icing bag/piping bag with frosting tips, try using a large ZipLock bag and simply cut off the tip.
