קרמבו ממתק קינוח


Sara Wasserman

Crembo, a commercially made Israeli treat, is a chocolate-coated cream confection with a cookie base.

Type: Parve Prep Time: 45 minutes Level: Not mentioned

Meringue Filling

1/4 cup water

4 egg whites or 3/4 cup Haddar Egg Whites

1 and 1/4 cups sugar

Chocolate Coating

300 grams bittersweet chocolate

2 tablespoons oil


150 grams bittersweet chocolate

Make the Crembos

Yields 20 small Crembos

Prepare Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper in a baking sheet. Melt chocolate in a double boiler and spread out onto parchment paper. Wait three minutes (until the sheen disappears from the chocolate). Using a cookie cutter or the rim of a glass, cut three-centimeter (a bit more than one-inch) circles out of the chocolate.

For the filling, place sugar and water into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and continue boiling for four minutes. In a mixer, beat egg whites. Leaving the mixer running, slowly pour the sugar syrup into the mixer bowl in a swirling motion.

Fill a piping bag fitted with a half-inch (one-centimeter) round tip with the meringue mixture. Swirl the mixture onto the chocolate circles. Freeze for one hour.

For the coating, melt chocolate and oil in a double boiler. Place the frozen Crembos on a rack over a large pan and pour melted chocolate on top of each one. (The extra chocolate will drip into the pan underneath.) Keep frozen until serving.
