Cooking Time1 hr
- 3 Egg whites - at room temperature
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup Caster sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until it gets fluffy
When the egg whites get fluffy, add the caster sugar 3 times and continue whisking.
Add the vanilla extract to this step.
The important criteria for the egg whites are, to become solid, to hang in the beater and to avoid sugar crumbs when you touch them.
When the meringue mixture turns into a bright and giant foam, divide them into three cups and add the red and green food colorings to the meringue mixture.
Put the parchment paper on a baking tray, put the sticks and pipe the mixture on top of it.
