Turn your chocolate into an extravagant dessert with this recipe for chocolate meringue pyramid. Homemade meringues are hard to do but they're well worth the effort. The crispy pyramid is topped with fresh berries, single cream - and chunks of naughty chocolate! Piping the meringue before its cooked will give it a ridged effect.


  • 4 egg whites (medium eggs)
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 250ml whipping cream
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 125g fresh raspberries
  • 125g chocolate, broken into pieces (This recipe uses Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations Cookie Nut Crunch)
  • 25g toasted chopped hazelnuts
