On Wednesday I had a dear friend over that I haven’t seen for months! This gave me the opportunity to make something very special for dessert (my boyfriend made the main course like always so I can focus all my energy on the important part of the meal). However I felt very uninspired. I didn’t want something to heavy or warm. I was pondering all day long until I remembered that I saw a fantastic dessert from Linda. It looks so good! And I always wanted to make meringues.
So I changed her recipe a little and came up with my own chocolate meringue dessert and it was soooo good!
All you need is:
– 3 egg whites
– 140 g sugar
– 1/4 tsp white wine vinegar
– 100 g dark chocolate
– 100 ml cream
– 1 Tbsp berries jelly
Preheat the oven to 125° C. Melt the chocolate over a water bath and put aside. Beat the egg whites until stiff and add the sugar and vinegar. Mix until it forms soft peaks. Roughly stir in half of the molten chocolate. Put the egg white mixture with a tablespoon on a baking tray and form little nests. Turn down the oven to 100 ° C and bake the meringue for 75 mins. Heat the rest of the chocolate with the cream and jelly and stir well. Put it into the fridge and let it cool down completely.
Take the meringues out of the oven and let them cool out. Take the cream out of the fridge and beat you get very dark beaten cream. Spread the chocolate cream onto the meringue and top it with fresh raspberries.
I think I did impress my guest. At least he ate two of these and I though one is already quite filling.
The jelly and the fresh raspberry give a little fresh twist to the (very) sweet dessert. It’s one of my favorite from now on for sure. I’ll make it again. Probably quite soon.
Now. Carry on!
I’ve never made meringues before, you have inspired me to try it out!
Perfect! You will not regret it. Even now – 3 days later they are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. So delicious!
I love meringues so much, they’re so light but delicious 🙂 If you’re a real chocoholic you should try stirring in some chocolate chunks to the meringue mixture before you spoon it onto the pan, it’s my favorite way to make them a little special.
Sounds great! I might try it the next time. The molten chocolate made these already quite special but I can imagine that chunks are even more delicious! Thanks for the hint.
I LOVE the blue and white plate, where did you get it? Or which brand is it?
It’s actually from ikea and a saucer. It’s quite old though. At least 8 years old. Sorry I couldn’t help you better.
