 The ingredient list;

  • Ice Cream (your favorite flavor)
  • Egg Whites
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Cream of Tartar

What is cream of tartar and why is it important in this recipe?

  • Cream of tartar is a stabilizing agent which will help the meringue increase up to eight times in volume by helping to hold in air and water.
  • It is a byproduct of wine and grape juice processing, and it’s acidic in flavor.

Is there a substitute I can use for cream of tartar if I don’t have it?

  • Yes, you can use white vinegar or lemon juice. For every 1/8 teaspoon called for of cream of tartar, you can substitute ½ teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice.

I used strawberry ice cream for making these Valentine’s Day baked Alaska. However, feel free to use your favorite flavor of ice cream.

And of course, by all means, don’t reserve this scrumptious dessert strictly for February 14th. Go ahead and indulge yourself (and your loved ones) with this easy to make treat any day of the year.

My husband and I don’t usually do much to celebrate Valentine’s Day anymore. Since we’ve been married going on 36 years, the pomp and circumstance of Valentine’s Day have faded a bit.

That said, we do like to celebrate Valentine’s Day by having something special for dinner (go figure, LOL). These deliciously charming, individual ice cream treats smothered with a fluffy cloud of toasted sweet meringue, sure fit that bill!

Do I need a culinary torch to make this recipe?

  • No. even though you’ll notice me wielding a small kitchen culinary torch in the video, you don’t need one to make this recipe. If you have access to a broiler, you’re good to go.
  • Just make sure to keep a close eye on them while they’re under the broiler, and only keep them under the broiler until the tops are lightly golden. Remove them immediately once the meringue is lightly golden brown.
