Chocolate Meringue Nests

Spring is in the air and it’s nearly Easter! Here’s my recipe for chocolate meringue nests - think pavlova but with chocolate!



You will need;

1x tin of chickpeas

100g white sugar

1tsp cream of tartar powder

Food colourings (I used Progel)

150g dark chocolate (I used Plamil )

100g vegan cream (I used Alpro )

Doisy & Dam Good Eggs

Baking Time Club sprinkles


 

Method;

  1. Preheat your oven to 100c

  2. Drain the chickpeas and whip the chickpea water (aquafaba) until light and fluffy in a mixer

  3. While still whipping, slowly add the sugar a little at a time

  4. Add the cream of tartar powder and whip until ‘stiff’

  5. Separate the meringue into small bowls and carefully marble in the food colouring. Try not to knock too much air out of the meringue mixture

  6. Pipe or spoon your nest shapes on a baking tray

  7. Bake for around 1 hour and 20 minutes, until you can lightly touch the meringue and it doesn’t leave a mark

  8. Leave to cool and set for around 10 minutes with the oven turned off and door open

  9. Pop into an airtight box until needed

  10. Make the chocolate ganache filling by gently melting the chocolate and cream together and stirring well

  11. Just before serving, pipe or spoon the ganache into the middle of each meringue nest

  12. Decorate with vegan mini eggs and sprinkles

  13. Eat and enjoy!



Although meringues take agessss in the oven they’re super simple to make and you can fill them with all sorts of delicious fillings. Let me know if you give these a go!
