yes, i did it! i made my first pavlova…all by myself! and it worked! okay, it doesn't look quite the same as the one i brought home from amanda's house (sweet mothers day )…..but i am sooooooooo proud of myself!!!
i've been talking pavlova to everyone over the last week and one friend suggested i try putting some ground hazelnuts and chocolate in part of it.
so here's what i did: i followed amanda's instructions and then divided the mix in two. one half i put straight on the baking tray and the other one i added grated lindt chocolate 70% with chilli and some ground hazelnuts to and then also put it on the baking try. they looked great when they came out of the oven….
i used the chocolate/hazelnut one for the bottom and added whipped cream and mixed berries…..
then i put the second meringue on top…
added more cream and berries and grated chocolate….
and voila…. the perfect desert for a cold and wet day!
