Meringue Bunnies

Ingredients:
2 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
2 oz. chocolate melting wafers
Pink nonpareil candy dots

Directions:
In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar at medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating at high speed until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a plastic sandwich bag and cut a small hole in a corner of the bag. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, pipe the meringue mixture into bunny shapes about 3”-4” inches tall. Bake at 225° F for 1 1/2 hours. Allow to cool on a wire rack. In a microwave safe bowl, heat the chocolate wafers at 50% power for 30 second increments, until completely melted. Stir until smooth. Place the melted candy in a plastic sandwich bag and poke a small hole in a corner of the bag. Paint on whiskers, mouths, and eyes. Use one pink nonpareil candy dot for each nose.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
