Oreo Mini Baked Alaskas

“We have prepared his favorite meal: New England Clam Chowder, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Idaho Potatoes, and Baked Alaska.” This it the line that instantly comes to mind when I think about a Baked Alaska. Ahhh… the joys of being a billionaire!

One would normally think that a “mini” version of this grandiose treat would be incredibly difficult, not so much. No need to have a kitchen staff to be able to enjoy this delicious desert.

Sure you could go all out and prepare the traditional version, but if you are looking for a flashy dessert that taste’s great and doesn’t require much work, I’ve got you covered! All you need is a quick trip to the market for a few key ingredients and we are in business.

I recently made baked Alaska and was shocked at how easy it is. These are soooo cute, not to mention beautifully piped. I bet these would be a huge hit at a party!
