Eton Mess is traditionally made with meringue, cream and strawberries, but our twist on the classic is packed with chocolate sponge, chocolate buttons and mini marshmallows which definitely tastes as good as it sounds. This super quick, no-cook dessert is a real crowd-pleaser and the kids will love making it too as it only takes 10 mins to rustle up. If you’re in a hurry get shop bought meringue nests, if not you could always make your own.


  • 284ml tub double cream
  • 4 bought meringue nests
  • 125g bought chocolate sponge
  • 33g bag chocolate buttons
  • 50g mini marshmallows

Try serving Chocolate mess in martini glasses for a real wow-factor.


  1. Whip the double cream until it holds its shape.
  2. Break up the meringues and chocolate sponge into rough chunks.
  3. Layer the meringue, sponge, cream, buttons and marshmallows into dishes. Serve immediately.
