Wow. I actually would have given 3 stars but everyone liked it! I was expecting sort of custardy base w/meringue topping. The egg whites deflated when the sugar was added & was more like marshmallow. Not entirely a bad thing. ;) This was OMG SWEET. WAY SWEET. But this is part of the reason the kids liked it so well. I liked it but in small doses. The base was the consistency of pudding & the flavor almost butterscotchy. What could be added to it to make it less sweet? Did I mess up making the meringue? Interesting recipe. Made for Aussie Swap 2/12.
