RECIPE: Meringue Mummies (Perfect for Halloween Night)

They're simple, spooky and scrumptious

Rebecca McKnight

The question that is commonly asked on Halloween night is trick or treat but really there’s no debate, we always go for the treat!

Speaking of which, here is a simple but delicious recipe for some spooky Meringue Mummies, courtesy of Siúcra.

You might make them for a party or for any trick-or-treaters who might call… but we’d say you’ll probably have them eaten before then!

(Makes 4)


  • 4 pears or apples
  • 240 g Siúcra/McKinney’s Icing Sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 ml vinegar


1. Using an electric whisk, beat all the ingredients into a smooth mixture.

2. Put the icing into a piping bag and cut off the tip.

3. Cover the fruit with the icing.

4. Place on a wire rack until set.
