Easy Meringue Poppers – Great classroom treat!

My Mom makes meringues. She makes a LOT of meringues. Up until I made this recipe, I’d assumed that she adored meringues for the volume she turned out.

Cake Batter Truffles

The best part of baking is getting to lick the spoon.  I thought it as a child, and while I do love a warm chocolate chip cookie, I still agree today.

Regardless, once I saw these cake batter truffles I knew they had to be on my Christmas treat list for all the batter-eaters in my
