Chestnut cream-filled meringues with chocolate sauce

Two white meringue cakes stuck together with chestnut cream and covered in chocolate sauce

Taking hardly any time at all to prepare these sweet, crunchy meringues filled with chestnut cream and covered in hot chocolate sauce are a dreamy dessert!

Serves 6 Preparation time: 10 minutes

1.5 cups (200g) thick crème fraiche
1 heaped tablespoon mascarpone
2 teaspoons sweet chestnut purée (crème de marrons)
50z (150g) bittersweet chocolate
5 tablespoons (70g) lightly salted butter
1 tablespoon demerara sugar
12 small meringue shells

Method

STIR the crème fraiche and mascarpone together until evenly combined. Fold in the chestnut purée but do this gently or the mixture will become too thick.

MELT the chocolate and butter together in a microwave or bain-marie, add the sugar, and stir until smooth

SPREAD a little of the chestnut cream over the flat base of one of the meringues and press another meringue on top to make a small sandwich. Repeat with the remaining chestnut cream and meringues.

SERVE immediately with the chocolate sauce.
