  • with the mixer on low slowly pour the hot syrup into the egg whites (in the area between the whisks and the edge of the bowl)
  • once it's all added turn the mixer up to high, add the vanilla and mix until the mixture is stiff peaks, thick and looks like marshmallow fluff 92-3 mins)

Assembly

  • pipe on the marshmallow fluff onto four cookies, let set for 15 mins
  • Stack the cookies with the plain ganache one on top
  • melt some of the ganache until runny
