the prognosis ain't good.
While everyone else has a 'thang' for macarons, my roommate and I instead have an obsession with meringues. It's probably one of the most common things that leaves our kitchen, from meringue kisses to lemon meringue pie (light on the curd, heavy on the meringue). So naturally, I had to do meringue bones for the Halloween party!
But wait! these aren't just plain meringues... A genius idea of my roommate's was adding a strip of licorice string as marrow in the bones. After baking them this way, I found out, biting into one, that the licorice both looks like marrow and simulates the softer center of bones when you bite into it, too! Creepy. :-D
Anyhow, get a good night's sleep, all. Tomorrow is a big day: Happy Halloween!
