Ice cream cupcakes


  • Preheat the oven to 160o C (320o F) set to fan.
  • Add the cookies in a food processor and pulse until they are crushed.
  • Add the melted butter and keep pulsing until there is a dough with the texture of wet sand. 
  • Spread the dough into a 25x35 cm baking pan and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and let the cookie cool. 
  • Place some cupcake liners in a 12-cup muffin pan. With a pastry brush, spread the melted chocolate over their bottom and sides.
  • Refrigerate the muffin pan for 15 minutes, so that the chocolate sets.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and follow the same process, creating a second chocolate layer into the cupcake liners. 
  • Divide 1 teaspoon of the cookie among each cup’s bottom -keep a little to serve- and add the ice cream on top. 
  • Transfer the muffin pan to the freezer for 1 hour.

For the meringue

  • In a heatproof bowl, mix the egg whites, the sugar, the vanilla extract, and transfer it over a pot with boiling water (bain-marie), making sure its bottom does not touch the water. 
  • Whisk constantly until the mixture turns white and thick, checking its temperature -at the same time- with a cooking thermometer. 
  • As soon as it reaches 82o C (180o F) and thickens enough, stop whisking.
  • Carefully transfer the meringue to the mixer’s bowl and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 3-4 minutes, until it cools and thickens.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer, transfer the meringue into a pastry bag, and cut its tip with a knife.

To assemble

  • Carefully remove the cupcakes from the cupcake liners and decorate them with the meringue. 
  • With a cooking torch, brown the meringue and serve right away, sprinkling with some crushed cookies.
