Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites

    Pink peppercorns have a uniquely pungent and slightly sweet flavor. You can find them on-line and in many of the finer spice isles.

    I can't even find sugar crystals where I live. Only already tinted very expensive ones.

    You could substitute peppermint extract and use crushed peppermint candies instead of the pink peppercorns.

    For the peppercorns, you could buy a multi colored pepper mix and pull out the pink/red ones.
