How To Make Sugar Free Peeps Recipe?
- 3/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Granulated Swerve
- 2 Tbsps. Powdered Erythritol
- Food Scale
- Stand Mixer or Electric Mixer
- 4 Ounce Plastic Dipping Bags
- Parchment Paper
- Bunny-Shaped Silicone Mold
Prepare the Meringue
Prepare the meringue by adding 75 grams of cool water and 2 egg whites to your stand mixer or electric mixer bowl.
Attach whisk and beat the egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. You can also use a hand mixer or whisk if you do not have a stand or electric mixer.
Add the powdered erythritol and the cornstarch to your meringue, and continue to beat the meringue until combined.
In a separate bowl or container, mix all the dry ingredients necessary for making this recipe: 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup granulated swerve, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
Mix all dry ingredients thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients to the meringue, and mix with your stand or electric mixer until combined. Be careful not to overbeat at this point.
Fill your 4-ounce plastic dipping bags with the meringue and seal them by folding them over the top. Use your scissors to snip off each bag’s tip so you can pipe in the meringue.
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Pipe out small mounds of meringue onto the parchment paper, filling each mold half-full.
Bake, the Peeps for 12 to 15 minutes or until meringues, are lightly browned; remove from the oven and allow peeps to cool.
- Spread out the meringue mixture on a cookie sheet into a thin layer. Bake at 160 degrees F for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cooling completely before removing it from the cookie sheet.
- Melt chocolate chips, butter, and sweetener in a saucepan until smooth. Spread over the top of cooled peeps using an offset spatula or spoon. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes until hard.
The meringue mixture can also be made ahead of time. The meringue mixture can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days and stored in the freezer for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before you use it.
