Halloween Meringue Pops - Ghosts, Spooky Faces & Bones

Halloween Meringues

Add a Spooky twist to classic meringues with these Halloween Meringue Pops.
Active Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 45 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes
Servings: 16 meringues


  • 2 large egg whites
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • Black gel food colouring*
  • 18 wooden cake pop or lollypop sticks



Make the meringue

  • Pre-heat your oven to 100ºC/80ºC fan.
  • Put your 2 egg whites into a large bowl and whisk on a low speed until foamy. Once foamy, increase the speed to medium until the egg whites form stiff peaks.
  • Add the caster sugar (100g) a tablespoon at a time and whisk until combined. You’ll now have a lovely stiff, glossy meringue.
  • Put a heaped tablespoon of your meringue into a small bowl and mix in some black food colouring (you need quite a bit to get the dark colour).

Pipe the meringues

  • Line your baking trays (you’ll need 2 trays) with greaseproof paper or a non-stick baking sheet.
  • Put your meringue and black meringue into a piping bags (use a large bag for the white meringue and a small bag for the black if you can).
  • Cut a hole about 1 cm in diameter in the bottom of the white bag and a very small hole in the black bag.
  • Lay your cake pop stick on the tray and pipe ghosts, bones and spooky faces – use the black meringue to add the eyes, nose and mouth details onto the ghosts and spooky faces. Make sure you hold the cake pop sticks steady as you pipe. If you’d like to see how I’ve piped each of the shapes take a look at the video.

Bake the meringues

  • Place the meringue nests into the oven and bake for 1 hour 45 minutes.
  • Remove them from the oven and serve.


If you don’t have any cake pop or lolly sticks then these also work really well just laid out in a bowl or platter as spooky meringue cookies.
❄️ Suitable for Freezing
If you're making these in advance then they'll keep for a few days in an airtight container (put a sheet of greaseproof paper between the layers of meringues). They also freeze brilliantly and can be eaten only a few minutes after removing them from the freezer.
