My daddy makes chocolate financiers (or “fancy things” as my little sisters says), but I really like white chocolate. So one day I told him he should make them white chocolate. We made them together and he said they all sold out that day! Plus they were delicious!
WHAT YOU’ll NEED:
›› 170 g Unsalted Butter
›› 90 g White Chocolate
›› 240 g Sugar (plus more for sprinkling)
›› 100 g All Purpose Flour
›› 120 g Almond Flour
›› 200 g Egg White
›› Daddy measures everything in grams because he’s a weirdo. So you have to have a scale to make this recipe. But it actually is super easy.
›› Put the butter in a small pot and have your mom or dad put it on the stove on low heat. Let it cook until it turns brown. It will bubble and squirt a lot while it melts so watch out!
›› This takes a couple minutes, so I usually measure out the rest of the ingredients while we wait.
›› Also, make sure to have extra white chocolate for snacking.
›› Don’t forget to preheat the oven! 325 degrees for a convection oven or 350 for a regular oven.
›› Once the butter turns brown, take it off the stove and carefully put the white chocolate in the melted butter. Stir it slowly until it all melts and mixes together. Let it set for a minutes to cool.
Next measure out all the almond flour, all purpose flour, and sugar. Then use a sifter on all of it. And then whisk it together. It will look like sand at the beach!
›› After that you have to separate the eggs. It’s kind of messy. But I really like cracking the eggs. You can save the yolks for a different recipe. Mix the whites with a spoon into the flour and sugar. And then stir in the melted white chocolate and butter.
›› After that, we used a piping bag to put the batter in mini muffin pans that we sprayed with oil spray. Fill the muffin cups about 3/4 full. Sprinkle sugar on top. I always put a lot of sugar.
›› Then bake them for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when you poke them. Let them cool for a few minutes before you take them out of the pan.
›› Then try not to eat them all…until no one is watching. Then blame the dog.
