Directions

Meringue Nests

Preheat your oven to 100°C. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment. Put the egg whites in a clean mixing bowl and whisk with an electric whisk until soft peaks form.

Gradually add the sugar a little at a time, whisking on maximum speed until they are stiff and glossy. Add the vinegar, cornflour and vanilla and combine.

Spoon 6 scoops of meringue onto the baking tray and make an indent in the center to hold the filling later.

Place in oven and bake for 90 minutes until the outside is hard but still white. Turn the oven off and leave overnight to dry out.

Filling

Whisk the cream and Coole Swan and keep cool.

Caramel Sauce

Add the sugar and 4 tablespoons of water to a pan and place over a medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Turn up the heat and cook until the sugar mixture turns a golden-brown caramel colour. Remove from the heat and carefully add the cream and butter stir through and set aside.

Coole Swan Chocolate Sauce

Melt the chocolate, remove from the heat and mix in the cream and Coole Swan. Set aside.

Assembly

To serve, spoon the Coole Swan cream into the center of the meringue nest. Add the caramel and chocolate pieces and drizzle over the Coole Swan chocolate sauce and caramel sauce and serve. Enjoy!
