Happy happy halloween my friends! Halloween happens to be one of my favorite holidays. Not because I like blood, gore and all things spooky. There’s just something nostalgic about it that reminds me of childhood and fun memories with my family and friends. I love the crisp fall air, parties, treats and dressing up. I love using my creative side and pretending to be someone else for an evening. Do you celebrate halloween? If so, what’s your favorite part about it?

I saw something similar to this on the internet, probably Pinterest, and I couldn’t wait to create a paleo version. Although my meringue came out shiny and smooth, I waited to long to pipe it onto my tarts so it kind of melted, face palm! The key is to pipe it on right after and serve immediately. Don’t take a million pictures and then serve them, ha ha! They still taste good, but they look so much prettier if you serve them right away! I hope you enjoy the recipe!
