Chocolate Chestnut Meringue Roulade
The cook and the brains behind Lemon Squeezy, a food facts and recipe website for busy people who care about what they eat.
Rich, creamy and impressive, this roulade is so much easier to make than it looks. And if it doesn’t come out quite as you hoped, a generous dusting of icing sugar works wonderfully to cover any imperfections!
You can substitute the chocolate with nuts if that sounds more like you. And try using amaretto or marsala instead of the rum.
This dessert freezes well and can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. Defrost at room temperature for 6-8 hours or overnight in the fridge.
