What’s better on a lovely summer’s evening than a decadent dessert that includes chocolate-covered strawberries and takes a couple of minutes to make?! In A Perfect Trade, Jenny makes her signature dessert — her special version of an English dessert called Eton Mess (which she picked up from reading her beloved, imported celebrity magazines!).
Several readers have asked if I’ll post the recipe for Jenny’s Eton Mess, so here it is!
NB: If you don’t have chocolate-covered strawberries, you can use fresh strawberries and add broken up pieces of chocolate or chocolate sauce to the mix.
1lb of fresh, chocolate-covered or chocolate-dipped strawberries, hulled and cut into quarters
1 pint of double cream
2 large or 4 small meringues, broken
1 tbsp grated chocolate.
Get a large glass bowl or serving dish. Drop in the cut chocolate-covered strawberries and broken meringue and mix.
Pour over double cream and mix again.
Sprinkle grated chocolate over the top.
Serve and enjoy!
