I have a weakness for the word meringue. 

It's something incredibly simple--light fluffy clouds of egg whites and superfine sugar baked until dry and crispy--but the thought of the initial crunch and melted sugariness on my tongue is irresistible to me. 

Une Meringue Chocolat
Chocolate Meringue with chocolate buttercream and sprinkles 

it almost looks like the top part of a ice cream drumstick to me...

but its actually two meringues sandwiched together with a smear of chocolate buttercream, rolled in some more buttercream and giant sprinkles
