Shop Our Meringue Range

How does Summery Pavlovas with a Rose and White Chocolate Cream sound to you? (YUM!)

We have partnered with blogger Roses & Rolltops to create a summer topping recipe which makes for a delightful summery pudding!

This recipe includes a mixture of our Meringues, using our Meringue Nests and Mini Meringue Nests.  Full recipe below.

You will need:

  • A mixture of Meringue Nests (e.g. 16 Meringue Nests and 10 Mini Meringues for 20 people. You will want to allow for 1-2 each)
  • Extra thick cream (Roses & Rolltops used Waitrose half fat extra thick cream. 2 x small pots was enough for the above)
  • A mixture of berries (e.g. Strawberries, Blueberries and Raspberries with extra to serve)
  • A couple of drops of rose water
  • A couple of spoonfuls of icing sugar
  • White chocolate to curl {optional}

Take it away Roses & Rolltops: 

1. Gather all your ingredients and lay out your meringues onto serving platters. You can make these up ahead of time if you've got room in the fridge, if not just prepare the cream in advance to keep in the fridge and then assemble before serving.

2. Make the cream by stirring the extra thick cream into a bowl. Add 2 spoonfuls of icing sugar per pot of cream {you don't need much as the meringues and berries are sweet already but it makes a plain cream taste better especially with the rose water tint} then dip the end of a teaspoon into the rose water. You don't want to overpower the cream so add a few drops at a time. I literally used about 4 drops per pot of cream so taste it as you go.

3. When ready to assemble, dollop a couple of spoonfuls of cream into each meringue. You can pile it as high as you like! 

4. Then pretty them up with the toppings. I think raspberry works especially well with rose but use whatever you have in season. Strawberries, rhubarb, blackberries, blueberries etc. 

5. I then started to curl some white chocolate to add using the back of a knife flat against a block of cooking chocolate. 

(For the smaller meringues I added just one berry on top).

Serve with a big bowl of fruit and extra cream if you feel they need them. Either alongside other puddings or just on their own after a big summers BBQ.
