  1. will have to make that EtonMess I made meringues today as my children were coming to share my birthday tea, we had strawberries and ice cream with them but will certainly be trying out that recipe ,looks so easy.

  2. I have made similar but used greek honey yoghurt instead and grated dark chocolate on top then sprinkled chopped nuts( whatever you have in the pantry.) but will have to try this one. Looks yummy!
    By the way, I serve this in Martini glasses! On special in Farmers at present! Posh!!!
