Chocolate Pavlovas
Method

For the meringue:

  • Preheat oven to 100* C (212* F) Fan.
  • Beat the egg whites, sugar, vanilla and salt in a mixer on high speed.
  • The salt helps the meringue stiffen faster.
  • Beat until the sugar has dissolved and stiff shiny peaks form.
  • At this point, add the caster sugar but do not beat much longer after you add it. Just enough to incorporate the caster sugar.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Transfer meringue to a piping bag. Pipe small meringue nests, which will be filled with cream.
  • Bake for at least 2 hours, depending on their size of course. For meringue nests that are 1-2 cm in diameter, 2 hours are enough.
  • You want their exterior to be cooked but the interior to be chewy.

For the cream filling:

  • Put the chocolate in a large bowl.
  • Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • As soon as it comes to a boil, remove from heat and add to the bowl with the chocolate.
  • Stir mixture in circular motions with a spatula until the chocolate melts and is completely incorporated.

For the whipped cream:

  • Beat the heavy cream in a mixer on high speed, using the whisk attachment. As soon as it starts to form peaks, slowly add the caster sugar and beat until you create a thick and shiny whipped cream.

To assemble:

  • Place the cream filling in a piping bag.
  • Fill each meringue nest with the mixture.
  • Fill another pastry bag with the whipped cream.
  • Decorate each meringue nest to your liking.
  • Sprinkle with some toasted almond slivers.
