hese lovely meringues are festive, sweet, and actually good for you. Made with three simple ingredients, they’re also one of the simplest holiday sweets you can share during the holidays. The fiber-based syrup helps keep these meringues low-carb while the sugar-free peppermint candies make them look like Christmas.

Tips & Tricks
For perfect meringue, you’ll need to use clean utensils and make sure not even a droplet of yolk ends up the egg whites. Another tip is to use older eggs as these tend to fluff up better.
To help stabilize meringue, feel free to incorporate a bit of cream of tartar into the mixture. Cream of tartar is an acidic salt that helps egg whites hold more air and remain fluffy during baking.
Don’t use less sweetener than recommended in this recipe – it also acts as a stabilizer, helping the meringues hold their shape.
