Plus, how delicious is meringue? Not only that, but it's quite possibly the easiest thing you could make. All you need are five ingredients to make these mice not only taste delicious but look pretty darn creepy too.
To make them, simply whip the egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla. I do this using my stand mixer, because who has the time to whip it by hand?
You mix until the mixture is slightly stiff but still curls under. Sounds weird, but it makes sense. Just look at the photo.
Then you add the sugar, 1 painstaking tablespoon at a time. You don't want to dump it all in at once, because trust me, then you'll have to remake the entire thing, and that's just dumb.
After the sugar is added, you whip for another few minutes on high until very stiff peaks form. In layman's terms, that means the meringue should stand up straight on its own. Next comes the fun part.
Tint it gray! I mean, have you really ever seen a white mouse?
You mix in the food coloring and then stuff the meringue into a piping bag. This is how you'll pipe the mixture into funky mouse shapes.
After that, preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and pipe mouse shapes onto the paper. Then you bake, let sit for 1 hour in the oven and then decorate with some icing gel and almonds.
And wahoo! You'll get really cute mice to spook your family with!

These are quick to put together but do take a bit of time in the oven, so plan ahead. Make your mice extra creepy by using red icing gel for the eyes.
