Mini chocolate pavlovas with berries

Method

Meringues

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C (374° F), set to fan.
  • Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper.
  • Cut the couverture into small pieces and melt it in a bain marie or in the microwave. Set it aside until needed.
  • In a mixer, add the egg whites along with the salt, and start beating at medium speed, until fluffy.
  • Start adding the sugar (1 tablespoon at a time) and beat until the sugar is completely dissolved and the meringue is glossy.
  • Stop the mixer and add the cornstarch.
  • Start beating again, at low speed for a few seconds, until the cornstarch is absorbed.
  • Lastly, add the vinegar, the orange extract, and beat for a few more seconds.
  • Place a little meringue under the parchment paper pieces, on all 4 sides, so that the parchment paper sticks onto the baking pans.
  • Start shaping the pavlovas in the following way:
  • Take six big tablespoons of the meringue and set them onto a baking pan placed quite apart, three on each one.
  • Add a small tablespoon of the melted chocolate onto each meringue and with the spoon, spread it over the whole surface.
  • On top of that, add another large tablespoon of the meringue and on top of that, another small tablespoon of the chocolate.
  • Repeat the process by dividing the meringue and the chocolate until there are six meringues.
  • With a spoon, push the meringue with the chocolate outwards, by creating a crown with a cavity in the center of each meringue.
  • As you place the meringues onto the baking pans, be careful to leave a gap between them since they will rise while baking.
  • Place the baking pans in the oven and bake for 5 minutes, without opening the oven.
  • Then, lower the temperature to 110° C (230° F) and bake for 45 more minutes.
  • Remove the meringues from the oven and set them onto a rack to cool for 1 hour.

For the garnish

  • Prepare the whipped cream.
  • In a saucepan, add the fruits along with the sugar, liqueur, and the remaining zest and juice from when you prepared the orange supremes.
  • Slightly heat the mixture, until the sugar melts, the liquids reduce, and you have a light syrup.
  • Transfer the mixture into a bowl and let it cool completely.
  • Break the chocolate into pieces and melt it in a bain-marie or in the microwave.
  • Allow 5 minutes for it to cool and with a spatula, spread it onto a smooth, metal or marble, surface (you want the chocolate to be very thin) and set it there to cool completely.
  • With a straight spatula, placed in a 45-degree angle in relation to the kitchen counter, start “scraping” the chocolate from your side towards the outside.
  • Wear gloves and pick up the chocolate shavings. If you do not use them right away, it would be good to refrigerate them so that they do not melt.

To assemble

  • Divide the whipped cream onto the pavlovas.
  • On top of the whipped cream, spread the berries and the chocolate shavings.
  • Dust with icing sugar and serve.
