Meringues have an interesting texture. After they are baking they are crispy and have the “melt in your mouth” flavor that surprise your tastebuds. These peppermint meringues are very good. They have just the right amount of peppermint and are not to overpowering. We made ours small, and they do not expand at all during the baking process, so next time I would make them a little bigger. Keep in mind though, they are supposed to be bite-sized and it is easier to eat when that size. The recipe does call for kosher salt. This affects the recipe so make sure to use that kind. Also, I could not get the lighting to work for the picture, so the meringues look more orange than they actually are (they are pink). These are good, quick treats that I will definitely make again.
