PER SERVING (2 Meringues): 47 calories, <0.5g fat, 20mg sodium, 9.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 8.5g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
These are the FLUFFIEST, MELTIEST, YUMMIEST and CUTEST meringues you will ever chew. You MUST make them ASAP!!!!!!
Ingredients: 3 large egg whites (a little more than 1/3 cup) 1/3 cup granulated white sugar 1/3 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated) 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar 32 mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions: Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line 2 large baking pans with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Using an electric mixer set at high speed, beat until fluffy and slightly stiff, about 3 minutes. Continue mixing with your electric mixer, and gradually add the sugar and Splenda until completely combined. Add the vanilla and continue mixing until blended.
Using a spatula, transfer all the meringue mixture to a large plastic bag. Squeeze mixture down toward one bottom corner of the bag. Snip that corner off with scissors. (Ta-da! Makeshift piping bag.)
Pipe mixture onto the parchment paper in ghost-like shapes about 3 inches long. (HG Tip! Do each outline first, and then fill it in.) Use the tip of your piping bag to smooth mixture and make sure the ghost shapes are filled in solidly. Continue until the mixture is gone, making 8 ghosts per baking pan.
Place 2 mini chips on each ghost for eyes.
Bake in the oven for 70 minutes. Do not remove meringues afterwards.
Turn oven off and allow meringues to set in the oven for 1 hour.
Pull meringues from the parchment paper and chomp away. Just don't eat them all at once!

Ingredients: 2 cups Fiber One Original bran cereal 6 Red Vines Sugar Free Vines (Cherry, Black Licorice, or Strawberry) 1 cup mini marshmallows 1 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
Directions: Place butter in a small saucepan, and set heat to medium-low. Once butter has melted, add marshmallows.
Stirring occasionally, cook until marshmallows have melted completely.
Remove from heat and immediately stir in Fiber One. Continue to stir until cereal is thoroughly coated.
Spray a 9-inch pie pan with nonstick spray. Transfer gooey cereal mixture to the pan. Using a large piece of wax or parchment paper, press down on cereal mixture to spread and flatten it into the bottom of the pie pan. Allow to cool slightly, so it isn't as sticky, and then carefully pull back the paper. Let sit at room temperature until cool but not completely solid -- it should be firm enough to cut but soft enough to mold.
Arrange a layer of wax or parchment paper on a flat surface. Place licorice twists lengthwise, spacing them about 6 inches apart.
Once mixture in the pie pan is cool and slightly solid, use a sharp knife to cut it into 6 "slices".
Carefully remove one slice from the pie pan. Place the point of it at the base of one licorice twist, overlapping by about an inch, so your treat looks like a broom. Press down firmly around the licorice to seal. Repeat with the rest of the slices and licorice twists. Enjoy!
