Trick-or-Treat: Spooky Chocolate Honey Patties
- 5 Tbsp meringue powder
- 1 lb powdered sugar
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 6 - 8 Tbsp water
- Orange gel food coloring or a natural food coloring of your choice
To make Royal Icing, mix meringue powder with 2 Tbsp water, then add powdered sugar until icing is smooth. Add in vanilla extract, and as much water as you need for the desired consistency. Icing should be soft enough to pipe without being runny. To color icing, separate into two bowls. Tint one with orange food coloring or the natural food coloring of your choice and leave the other white. Put each color in a plastic bagging, and then cut off the tip of one corner for piping.
Using the white icing, pipe three intersecting lines across your Chocolate Honey Pattie that form a star shape. Each line should intersect at the middle of the CHP. Then, pipe circles from the inside going out, connecting to each main line with a swooping c-shape to create the web.
