Servings: 24 small trees


  • Baking sheet
  • Foil
  • Non-stick spray
  • Mixing bowl
  • Electric Mixer


  • 4 Egg Whites
  • ½ teaspoons Cream of Tartar
  • 1 cup plain white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Butter Vanilla Emulsion flavoring. I use THIS kind (optional)
  • Christmas colored sprinkles
  • Golden tree topper sprinkles (like THESE)
  • Green food coloring
  • Icing bag (or zip top bag)
  • Star-shaped frosting tip (found in the frosting section at your grocery store)


  • Preheat the oven to 225° degrees F.
  • Prepare a baking sheet, covered in foil, and sprayed lightly with non-stick spray.
  • Using an electric mixer, whip the egg whites for a few minutes on high speed until they are frothy.
  • Add the sugar to the frothy egg mixture in small amounts.
  • Continue to mix on high for 1 minute.
  • Add in the cream of tartar.
  • Add butter vanilla emulsion and green food coloring until desired shade is reached.
  • Continue to whip the mixture on high for 4-5 minutes until stiff peaks form (meaning that the meringue holds a form when the mixer is turned off).
  • Using an icing bag with a star shaped frosting tip, press the meringue mixture down onto the foil and gently swirl in a circular motion (like making soft serve ice cream).
  • Add Christmas colored sprinkles and a golden sprinkle on top.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or just before they begin to turn brown along the edges.
  • Let them cool completely (or eat them when they are a tiny bit warm!).
  • Store in an air tight container.
