Chocolate Peppermint Meringue Christmas Trees

These Frosty White Meringue Christmas Trees are kissed with a touch of Peppermint and Chocolate.  A Sweet Topper for Cake or Cupcakes, or a Fun Homemade Gift.  Gluten- and Dairy-Free

When you're a little, the Christmas season is just so completely magical.  The lights, the yummy treats, Santa, the decorations, the parties, and, of course, presents ;)

But I'll never forget the first time I laid eyes on one of those fake sparkly-white Christmas trees.

Oh, my sweet Lord.

I think my six year old heart skipped a beat.

I don't know what it is about those but they stir something up in me, even today.

I'm always on the hunt for a tempting gluten- and dairy-free homemade treat, especially at this time of year.  One of the staffers at my younger son's preschool has food sensitivities, and I always feel bad for her at Christmastime.  She's surrounded by so many fabulous treats that she simply can't indulge in!  I want to give her something she can truly enjoy, so when I saw this idea, I just knew it was destined to happen, in my kitchen.
