I just made Snow White for dessert tonight. I can already feel myself getting fat and ugly, but yum. So worth it.

For those that don't know what Snow White is, it's a refrigerated sort-of-layer-cake consisting of crushed meringues, whipped cream, grated chocolate and raspberries and it's more or less sin in a bowl.

*wanders off to go stare at the fridge*

That sounds delicious!

On a only-slightly related note: I used to really enjoy meringues when I was little. Then, around third grade or so, I did a Girls Scouts bake-off, and one of the cookie judges told me that meringues were made of dead baby chickens.

I haven't been able to look at those cookies the same since.

N-ice. Most cookies are made of dead baby chickens. We call them eggs. Idiot. The judge, not you.

Luckily, you don't see them in a Snow White, though. :) Want the exact recipe?

Most cookies are made of dead baby chickens. You'd think so, wouldn't you? My Mother's been on an even-more-vegan-than-her-usual-vegetarianism kick lately, and she's discovered that if you use arrowroot powder, agar (the seaweed gel that lines the bottom of petri dishes) and applesauce.... you, too, can make cookies without eggs, flour, or sugar. At least, they look like cookies but they taste like gravel.

Luckily, you don't see them in a Snow White, though. I'm the same way with mushrooms in my food: if I don't SEE them, it's totally ok to eat them...

And yes, a recipe would be lovely. I'm not sure when I'd have a chance to eat it, but, well, I'll keep it with my recipe for bootleg Samoas cookies, and the one for knock-off Red Lobster cheddar biscuits.

It's really easy, since I can't give you exact measurements anyway. :) Take a bowl (with straight sides, preferably), break up some meringues and put them into the bowl until the bottom is covered. A bit less than an inch, maybe.

Then cover the first layer with whipped cream, then put a layer of frozen raspberries on. Each layer should be thick enough to cover the one below. A thin layer of grated chocolate is optional. Then the meringues again, whipped cream, raspberries.

Rinse and repeat however many times you like. It should end with raspberries and then a cover of whipped cream. Decorate with whatever's left and put into the fridge for at least ten hours. Overnight is better.

Then eat. And eat. And eat. And eat some more.

Then explode.

Careful when shopping, you're gonna need more of everything (especially meringues) than you think.


I thought about the whole dead baby chicken thing and you know what? Technically, they're not dead baby chickens. Technically, they're potential baby chickens. As in, might have been babies if there'd been a daddy. But since there isn't, they're just... useless, evolution-wise. Ha!

A) thank you for the recipe. I'm drooling already.

B) I really like that theory. And, since eggs are "useless, evolution-wise", I should actually eat more of them, to help the chickens evolve as a breed and achieve their maximum potential. Mmmmm, french toast in in my future....

I am jealous.

Don't be jealous. Think of all the calories that won't go directly to your hips...
