Chocolate Eton Mess

Eton Mess is traditionally double cream and strawberries, but I made this in a chocolate version.

Recipe By: Mizue (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/32)
Serves 6 Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Chocolate (80% cocoa) 80g
Your favourite liqueur (Cointreau, creme de cassis, brandy) 1 tsp
Hot water 60ml
Sugar (granulated or caster) 2 tbsp
Double cream 170ml
Meringues 4
Raspberries 150g

Method

1
Grate the chocolate in a bowl and microwave for 90 seconds or melt in a bain marie.
2
Add a bit at a time, the sugar, liqueur and hot water, whisking well.
3
Add the double cream and whisk until fluffy and soft peaks. Transfer to dessert glasses.
4
To make this as a firm mousse, keep in the fridge for one hour.
5
Just before serving, crumble the meringue and add to the glasses. Decorate with the raspberries and serve.

Tips & Note

You can use bananas, strawberries, figs or oranges instead of raspberries. Don't add too much sugar, as the sweetness comes from the meringue.
