6 lrg Egg whites
1.75 cups Granulated Sugar
1 tsp White vinegar
1 tsp Cornstarch
2 cups Whipping Cream
3 tbsp Granulated Sugar
0.25 tsp Peppermint extract
4 sml Mini Candy Canes
0.25 cup Dark chocolate curls


  1. Preheat oven to 300F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Trace a 10-inch circle with a marker on the parchment, then add a 4-inch inner circle. When marker dries, flip it over (so the marked side is facing down).
  2. Whisk egg whites using an electric mixer until foamy. With mixer running, gradually add sugar. Increase speed to high and whisk until egg whites are glossy, thick and hold stiff peaks, 4 to 7 min. Stir vinegar with cornstarch until smooth. Whisk into egg whites.
  3. Spoon mixture onto prepared sheet, following the marker lines to create a wreath. Use the back of a large spoon to create indentations for the whipped cream.
  4. Place pan in the oven and reduce temperature to 250F. Bake 90 min or until meringue is golden and cooked through. Let cool completely.
  5. Whip cream with sugar and peppermint, using an electric mixer on high, until it forms soft peaks. Spoon into indentations in meringue. Roughly crack candy canes into large pieces. Top whipped cream with candy canes and pieces and chocolate curls. 

Recipe notes

Serving Tip: Add a sprig of holly and a ribbon tied into a bow to make this look just like a festive wreath.
