  • Line the baking sheet with parchment paper and prepare the piping bag.
  • Preheat the oven to 105 c.
  • Beat the egg whites in a bowl until they are foamy. Add the soft cream of tartar to this and continue beating till soft peaks are formed.
  • Add the sugar by parts and also, beat in the vanilla extracts.
  • Put this meringue into the piping bag and pipe in high mounds into the baking sheet.
  • Place the edible silver dragees or the chocolate chips into each meringue so that it seems like the eyes.
  • Bake for around 1 to 1.5 hours and leave the meringues for a couple of hours to dry before serving.
