This is a recipe for a tart made of a soft and smooth meringue combined with a rich and thick chocolate filling. I especially liked how the two parts -the meringue and chocolate filling complemented and contrasted each other by enhancing one another's texture and flavour. Thin and light meringue vs. thick and heavy chocolate mixture. A perfect dessert after any meal!
: 10 minutes
: 30 minutes (2hours Chilling time)
: 4 servings
125g Arnott's Marie biscuits (or similar)
50g cocoa powder
70g butter, melted
100g milk chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup thickened cream
1/4 cup chocolate hazelnut spread
3/4 cup caster sugar
Make sure you don't cut back on the sugar as the sugar helps the meringue become crunchy on the outside and sweet in the inside! Make sure you add small portions of the sugar at a time while beating the egg whites. Otherwise if you dump it all in one go the egg whites will deflate!
(I also added some extra biscuits, butter and cocoa powder to make a mini one using a small heart tin.)
