Description

This is a very special dessert that kids will love. And it is very easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 6 slices Your Favorite Cake, 1/2 Inch Thick Slices
  • 6 Tablespoons Your Favorite Ice Cream, Or More As Needed To Fill Your Ramekins
  • 3 whole Eggs ( Only The Whites)
  • ¼ teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • Optional Garnishes: Chocolate Syrup, Sprinkles, And Cherries

Preparation

Break each slice of cake into several small pieces and divide them evenly among six 3-inch oven safe ramekins, pressing the cake into the bottom of each. Fill each ramekin with ice cream, using the back of a spoon to smooth it level at the top. Place the ramekins on a cookie sheet and put it in the freezer while you prepare the snow (meringue).

Heat the oven to 500ºF. Place the egg whites in a medium-size bowl and whip them with an electric beater set at medium-high speed until they resemble soap bubbles. Add the cream of tartar and continue beating until soft peaks form (now it will look like shaving cream). While you continue beating, add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time and then add the vanilla extract. Continue beating until shiny, stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes. Now you have your snow!

Remove the ramekins from the freezer and spread the snow meringue over the top of each with a spatula, taking care to completely cover the ice cream. This “blanket of snow” is what insulates the ice cream, keeping it cold in the hot oven.

Bake the snowballs on the cookie sheet until the tops are golden brown, about 1 to 3 minutes. Watch them carefully because they brown quickly. Garnish the snowballs with chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and cherries, and serve. Enjoy!
