These pretty pastel colored meringues are delicious all year round! Recipe courtesy of Pastiglie Leone.


  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup superfine granulated sugar
  • 1 box, 1 ounce, Pastiglie Leone candies, your favorite flavor


  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees F. and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the egg whites with the salt in a standing electric mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, still beating at high speed, until glossy peaks form.
  3. Spoon the meringue into a zip-lock or pastry bag and pipe 1-inch meringues onto the baking sheets. Top each meringue with a few candies.
  4. Bake until firm, but still white, about 2 hours. Allow to cool completely on the sheets on a rack before removing them. Store for up to a month.
