Step 1

Wash your hands, bowls and any utensils you will be using for this recipe to remove any trace of grease.

Preheat oven to 200F.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Combine egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment.
Whisk on medium-high until very foamy, then add sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, until combined. Continue whisking, scraping down sides of bowl as needed, until stiff and glossy peaks form when whisk is lifted and sugar has dissolved, approximately 2 to 4 min.
(Meringue should not feel gritty when mixture is rubbed between your fingers.)

Step 3

Add vanilla. Dip the tip of a skewer into gel food colouring and swirl through meringue. Whisk until combined.

Step 4

Scrape meringue into a piping bag fitted with a 1/2-in.-round tip. Holding the bag with your tip close to the parchment, gently squeeze bag and pipe a 2-in.-wide meringue.
Release bag and pull up to make a pointed tip.
Repeat, piping meringues 1-in. apart.

Step 5

Bake in centre of oven for 2 hours.

Without opening oven door, turn off heat and leave meringues in the oven until completely cool, 4 to 6 hours, preferably overnight.

Step 6

Pour melted candy melts onto a large plate.
Pour sprinkles into a small bowl.
Dip the bottom of a cooled meringue into candy melts, then dip into sprinkles.

Set on a platter to enjoy.
