Make no boos about it, these ghost cupcakes are all treat and no tricks whatsoever.

I got the idea for these easy Halloween cupcakes when I was making meringue cookies last Christmas. A few less than perfect meringues looked like ghosts. I tucked the idea in the back of my mind to turn a simple meringue cookie into a boo-tiful ghost cupcake topper.

Step 2:

In a large bowl, beat eggs on high with a hand mixer or stand mixer with whisk attachment until they become frothy. Add cream of tartar and beat on medium until soft peaks begin to form. Turn mixer to high and begin adding the sugar one tablespoon at a time, mixing between each addition. Continue beating until all the sugar is dissolved and stiff peaks begin to form.

Pour mixture into a piping bag and pipe small and large mounds onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Add two chocolate chip eyes to each large mound and mini chocolate chip eyes to the small mounds. Bake for 45 minutes in a 225 degree over. Then, turn off the oven and allow the cookies to rest in the warm oven for an hour. Remove from oven and cool completely.
