These Low FODMAP Peppermint Meringues are easier to make than you might think - store in an airtight container to keep them crisp.
Low FODMAP Serving Size Info: Makes about 40 to 60 meringues (depending on size); serving size 2 meringues
Position racks in upper and lower third of oven. Preheat oven to 200°F/95°C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
Use a large soupspoon to carefully place meringue into a pastry bag by fitted with the ½-inch (12 mm) tip.
For Kiss Shapes: Pipe 1½- to 2-inch (4 cm to 5 cm) “kisses” onto prepared sheets, spacing 2-inches (5 cm) apart. The stripes will make themselves! It is a random process, but it always works out well if you allow the white meringue and the red dots of color to remain distinct before spooning into the pastry bag.
For Heart Shapes: Pipe two overlapping teardrop shapes to create a "heart" shape. This takes some practice, but you can do it! And it is fine if each one is different.
For Cacao Nib Meringues: Simply use a teaspoon to scoop out small cookies directly onto sheet pans. Sprinkle a few c cacao nibs on top.
For Decorated Meringues: Any of the meringues can be sprinkled with sugar decorations before baking.
