The Peppermint Snow Peaks are Festive and Delicious

The Peppermint Snow Peaks are formed by creating a meringue mixture and then dipping the bottom of the swirled treat in chocolate.

What is interesting about this recipe is that meringue is not usually served as a standalone dessert or as a solid. Normally it tops a cake or is the inside filling. The trick to getting your frothy mixture to stand still is to throw in cream of tartar and mix it until its firm. Then, use a piping bag to squeeze out white swirls onto a parchment baking sheet and place it in the oven at 225 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour.

The Peppermint Snow Peaks are not a quick fix dessert, so don't delay when making the candy cane topped treats.
