My son’s friend Amber Simmons is a Domestic Goddess-in-training and has dreams of going to culinary school. She is a fabulous cook and once in awhile our family is lucky enough to be blessed by the bounty of her recipe creations.
Recently Amber came over and shared her wonderful latest recipe creation: S’more Puffs. These are little meringues that are baked and then their bottoms are slathered with a chocolate ganache and dredged in graham cracker crumbs. They are a one-bite s’more sensation! So delish and – you don’t even need a campfire! Another 5-ingredient recipe that is FABULOUS!
2 large egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Whip egg whites to soft peak stage and then gradually add in sugar while whipping until stiff peaks form. Pipe the meringue onto a lightly oiled baking sheet (or silicone mat on a baking sheet). Form the meringues into “kiss” shapes about the size of a ping pong ball. Bake in center of oven for 50 to 60 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool. Poke a hole in the bottom of each meringue and remove a little of the meringue to form a small pocket.
Break chocolate into small piecesÂ in a bowl. Heat cream to boiling point and pour over chocolate. Allow chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally. Pipe the melted chocolate mixture into the pocket of each meringue and smooth with a knife so that chocolate coats the entire bottom of meringues. Dip the chocolate covered bottoms into graham crumbs and set on a plate to cool.
Makes 24 bite-sized S’more Puffs.
