MERINGUE CHRISTMAS TREES

These meringue Christmas trees are super fun to make. They melt in your mouth when you eat them and they don’t take a lot of ingredients. The kids can help decorate the trees too. We like to use sprinkles of all different colors, candies cut up, M&M’s, etc. Enjoy and have fun!
