No-bake Sans Rival Cupcakes


One of the most delicious desserts is San rival but be careful of the calories you will get from a slice of it.

Who cares! Do not deprive your self from eating such mouthwatering desserts.

You can burn the calories in just 30 minutes of dancing or walking though.

As chemist, I love doing experiments. I am glad to share my latest experiment in my favorite laboratory - the kitchen.

I made sans rival with a twist. I made it into a cup cake. And to add more twist, I made it a no-bake version. How?

I used Lemon Square Inipit.

I toast for about a minute or two, pressed and cut it using cookie cutter.

Prepare the butter-cream boiled icing.

Made an alternate layer of meringue, filling and chopped nuts until the cup is filled then topped with chopped nuts.

As a rule of thumb, never work in the laboratory alone. therefore, I let Matthew to help me in doing this "experiment".
