Eating our Homemade Meringues is like taking a bite out of a cloud except better because you can add these delicious airy pillows on your favourite pie!

Ingredients:

4 egg whites
Pinch of kosher salt
1 cup sugar, divided
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp white vinegar

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 250ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Trace six 3-inch circles on the parchment sheets. Flip the parchment over so your meringue won`t touch the ink.

Increase speed to high and gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, mixing until stiff peaks form. In a small bowl, combine 1/4-cup sugar with cornstarch. Lightly fold cornstarch mixture and vinegar into egg whites.

How To Make Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups


Watch and find out how you can make these delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from scratch.

Ingredients:

Chocolate Bottom Layer
¼ cup heavy cream
1 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate

Peanut Butter Center
1 cup smooth peanut butter
¾ cup butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp kosher salt

Chocolate Top Layer
¼ cup heavy cream
¾ cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate

Caramelized Peanuts
1 cup roasted peanuts
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp water
Pinch of kosher salt

Directions:

1) For chocolate bottom layer, line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and coat with non-stick cooking spray. In a small saucepan, heat ¼ cup cream over medium heat just until hot. Remove from heat and whisk in 1 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate. Distribute melted chocolate evenly between muffin cups and refrigerate for 15 minutes to allow the bottom chocolate layer to harden.
2) For the peanut butter layer, in a microwave-safe dish, melt peanut butter and butter together. Stir in graham cracker crumbs, sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Place a few tablespoons of peanut butter mixture over hardened chocolate, filling the muffin cup ¾ of the way up. Refrigerate for 15 minutes more to harden.
3) For the top layer of chocolate, in a small saucepan, heat ¼ cup cream over medium heat just until hot. Remove from heat and whisk in ¾ cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate. Distribute melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter layer. Garnish with caramelized peanuts. Chill until firm, at least 30 minutes before serving.
4) For the caramelized peanuts, combine peanuts, sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously, until peanuts turn an amber color without burning them. Remove from heat, spread out on parchment paper, sprinkle with salt and let cool. Break into pieces and garnish peanut butter cups.
