For this you mix 50g of cereals with 50g of melted white chocolate and fill it in a small silicon mold which was layered with plastic wrap. Freeze for about an hour before...
egg white frosting
It took me some time but I finally was able to try out this egg white frosting and I have to say I really like as well the taste as also the consistency.

First you make the chocolate ganache which you can already prepare a day in advance and heat up the next day in the microwave....
