Frozen Peanut Butter Pops
Makes 60 to 70 tiny pops


For the pops
2 c. Skippy peanut butter
¾ c. corn syrup
¼ c. heavy cream
3¼ c. heavy cream, soft whipped
6 lg. egg whites
¾ c. superfine sugar
2 tsp. salt

For the dipping chocolate
1 c. bittersweet chocolate
1 c. cocoa butter
1 c. crunchies (sugar cones, finely mashed up)

1. In a bowl, mix peanut butter, corn syrup, unwhipped cream, and 1 cup soft-whipped cream. Set aside.

2. In another bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy (this can be done by hand or with a mixer). Gradually add sugar and whip until soft peaks form, like a French meringue.

3. Fold meringue into peanut butter mix, then fold in remaining soft-whipped cream and salt.

4. Fill pop molds with mixture. Freeze until hard enough to unmold and dip into chocolate (about 4 hours in a standard kitchen freezer).

5. Over a double boiler, melt chocolate and cocoa butter, stirring frequently. Let cool.

6. Add crunchies.

7. Dip pops into chocolate mix and serve.
