Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Place the eggs whites in a glass mixing bowl with salt. Beat until the whites are stiff. Slowly add 1/4 cup of Splenda beating constantly. Mix in food coloring, almond extract and coconut using a slow deliberate mix to avoid deflating the mixture.
Drop the mixture from a teaspoon onto a greased and well- floured baking sheet. Bake about 30 minutes. Turn oven off and let kisses continue to sit in oven for 1 1/2 hours.
While the original recipe called for almond extract, there's no reason you couldn't use other flavors such as peppermint, cinnamon, cocoa, or orange zest. Just remember to go easy on the flavoring as these should be a delicately flavored treat.

I came up with this while looking for an alternative to sugar-free chocolate as an after dinner treat. My daughter loved meringue when she was little also.
