  • 6 large 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


  1. 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 2 sheets of parchment. Place each sheet, pencil mark down, on a baking sheet or pizza pan; set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Just before serving, place whipped topping in a large bowl; fold in 3 candy bars. Place 1 meringue layer on a serving plate; top with half topping mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with remaining candy bar.
