Cooking Almond Meringue Snickers:
Step 1: prepare the mass for meringues.Preheat the oven to 100 degrees Celsius. Take the right amount of chicken eggs, with a knife, alternately break their shell into 2 parts and divide the yolks with proteins into separate bowls, and then transfer the squirrels into a deep bowl. You will need only squirrels, so put the bowl with the yolks in the refrigerators or use immediately for any other dish. In a bowl of protein, add the right amount of sugar and salt. Place a container under the mixer blades and beat the ingredient until splendid. The mixing process starts at a slow speed and increase as the egg whites thicken. In 15 minutes Intensive whipping sugar grains and salt crystals completely dissolve, turn off the mixer and add lemon juice and almond extract to the proteins. Continue whipping, at high speed, for another 20 - 25 minutes. Protein should be whipped qualitatively, if you decide to turn the bowl upside down, the whipped mass should not spill out of the tank.
Step 2: bake the meringues.Cover a non-stick aluminum pan with a sheet of baking paper. Place a pastry bag with a round or grooved nozzle on a liter jar. Use a tablespoon of whipped protein in it. Pressing it gently with your hand, form small meringues with an approximate diameter on the baking sheet up to 6 centimeters. Lay the whipped mass so that the lumps lie a short distance from each other is enough 5 to 6 centimeters. Make sure that your oven has warmed up to the temperature you need and only after that place the pan on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake meringues for 1 hour 30 minutes. After helping yourself with a kitchen towel, remove the baking tray with meringue from the oven, let them cool slightly and using a kitchen spatula, transfer the snow-white lumps to a metal grate. Allow the meringue to cool to room temperature.
Step 3: prepare the nuts.Place the required amount of roasted peanuts in a clean and dry blender bowl. Grind them to the desired size by turning on the kitchen appliance at low speed. In the original, these are rather large pieces of nuts, crushed into 2 - 3 parts, but you can act as you wish, the main thing is that the crushed mass does not resemble crumbs. Pour the nuts into a deep plate.
Step 4: prepare the chocolate.Place the chocolate dragee in a deep stewpan and place the container on a plate included at the smallest level. Melt the aromatic ingredient to a smooth, velvet texture without lumps, stirring the chocolate with a wooden kitchen spoon to avoid sticking to the bottom of the container. Then remove the stewpan from the stove and let the chocolate cool slightly.
Step 5: bring the dish to full readiness.Now alternately dip each meringue in chocolate, then in nuts and lay them greased side down on an aluminum baking sheet previously covered with parchment sheet. Let the chocolate completely harden, then transfer the meringues to the dessert plate and prepare your favorite drink. This type of candy can be stored at room temperature no more 3 days or in the refrigerator up to 1 month after laying the meringues in a plastic container with a tight lid.
Step 6: Serve the Snickers almond meringue.Snickers almond meringue is served at room temperature or chilled. Delicate aromatic sweetness is pleasant to savor with fresh only brewed tea, coffee, cocoa, warm fresh milk or herbal infusion. In addition to this dessert, you can use fruit and berry syrups, you can pour them onto finished products, thus giving meringues different flavoring shades. Cook with pleasure and enjoy!
