This crisp, vanilla-scented meringue shell is loaded with luscious chocolate filling and topped with whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings for a dessert that is SO decadent and SO good. It's also deliciously, and naturally, gluten free!
Lots of websites and blogs claim to show you how to make the best meringue, but they aren't always consistent and they don't always yield the best results. We'll show you, step-by-step and with plenty of clear photos, the proper steps to making a no-fail recipe backed by egg white science.
Be sure to make the meringue shell the day before you wish to serve the dessert as it needs to dry in the oven overnight. Also, use this recipe as a jumping off point. The shell is so versatile and can be filled with other flavors of pastry cream or curds, such as Fresh Lemon Curd or Grapefruit and Vanilla Curd, then topped whipped cream and berries.
