Top 5 Deserts in 5 Minutes: Number 1: Crunchy Meringues with Icecream, Berries and Chocolate Recipe

Drum roll please! The number 1 top 5 desert in 5 minutes is: absolutely delicious and requires no cooking at all. If you are feeling particularly domestic goddess like (a la Nigella Lawson), you could make your own meringues, but this would turn this desert from a 5 minutes wonder into something slightly more time consuming.

Crunchy Meringues with Icecream, Berries and Chocolate Recipe Ingredients

  • Shop bought meringue nests, 1 per person
  • Scoop vanilla ice cream per person
  • Handful mixed berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries etc) per person
  • Grated dark chocolate (I use Lindt dark chocolate 70% cocoa)

Crunchy Meringues with Icecream, Berries and Chocolate Recipe Method

Break the meringue nests into small pieces (you don’t want meringue powder, so do this by hand) and arrange in a bowl or desert glass. Top with a scoop of ice cream, scatter with the berries, and sprinkle over the grated chocolate.
