This is a recipe for a mini version of the classic baked alaska.
The hot snowballs are easy to make, but requires that you are ready to eat when the dessert comes out of the oven.
To 5-6 small cups of hot snowballs, you need a little chocolate, some ice cream, 3 egg whites and 2 tablespoons powdered sugar (about 25 grams).
Melt the chocolate and cover each of the small cups with a thick layer on the inside. This is easily done with a teaspoon.
When the chocolate has set fill each cup with an ice cream you like. Wrap the ice creamreally well together so there are no air holes.
While the cups are in the freezer, you heat the oven to 200 C and make a meringue: Beat egg whites slightly, add one tablespoon of icing sugar, whisk again and add the secondtablespoon. Whisk a little bit more.
When you are completely ready, take the cups out of the freezer. Garnish each cupquickly with meringue. Remember to come right over the edge of the cup.
Put the cups onto a tray and into the oven. Keep an eye on them. As soon as themeringue is light brown, take the cups out, distribute them on saucers and serveimmediately.
