Essentials recipe Mini Egg chocolate meringue nests would make the perfect dessert for Easter Sunday. With a crisp coating and gooey centre, these meringues are perfect drizzled in chocolate and cream and topped with plenty of Mini Eggs of course

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 250g white caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 300ml double cream
  • 100g chocolate, melted
  • 1x pack Mini Eggs

Swirl the chocolate through the cream at the last moment before serving.

Method

  1. Put the oven on its lowest setting 100C/gas ½ . Whisk the egg whites until stiff and standing in peaks. Add half the sugar, whisk in well then add the rest of the sugar in 2 batches to make a thick, glossy meringue. Whisk the cornflour mixture into the meringue with the vinegar. Spoon 6 large, fluffy mounds of meringue onto 2 baking trays lined with baking paper and bake for 1½ hrs, until they’re crisp and come off the paper easily. Turn off the oven and leave them in there to cool.
  2. Whip the cream until soft and billowy, then fold in the chocolate lightly. Spoon into the nests and serve with Mini Eggs.
