Candy Bar Meringue Torte

This is one of those "Where did you get this recipe?" creations! It's simple to make ahead, so it's perfect for having on hand for a large gathering. This is a wonderful finish to a holiday meal or when guests drop by. —Karen Nemeth, Fort McMurray, Alberta
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + standing
  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 6 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 4 Butterfinger candy bars (2.1 ounces each), coarsely crushed, divided


  • Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Using a pencil, draw a 10-in. circle on each of two sheets of parchment paper. Place each sheet, pencil mark down, on a baking sheet or pizza pan; set aside.
  • Add vanilla and cream of tartar to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form.
  • Spread into 10-in. circles on prepared pans. Bake at 225° for 50-60 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Turn oven off; leave meringues in oven for 1 to 1-1/4 hours.
  • Just before serving, place whipped topping in a large bowl; fold in three candy bars. Place one meringue layer on a serving plate; top with half of topping mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with remaining candy bar.

    I have not yet made this, but will soon. I am wondering if anyone has tried it using toffee bars?
