Brown sugar meringue with chocolate and maple cream
150g (approx. 5, size 6) egg whites Pinch cream of tartar
300g brown sugar
1 Tbsp corn flour
1 tsp white vinegar
½ tsp vanilla extract
50g melted chocolate
10 Ferrero Rocher chocolates
1 tsp of cocoa for dusting
1 heaped tsp icing sugar 2 tsp maple syrup 1. Pre heat oven to 120°C.
2. Whisk egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Continue whisking, adding the brown sugar a spoonful at a time. When all the sugar is added but the mixture is not grainy, add vanilla, cornflour and vinegar. Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Cool slightly, then swirl half the chocolate into the meringue, don’t mix.
3. Using around 2 heaping spoonfuls per serving, make 10 mounds of meringue on a baking paper covered tray, create indents in each with the back of a spoon and using the tip of a knife drizzle and swirl on the remaining chocolate.
4. Reduce temperature to 100°C. Bake 1-½ hours. Meringues should lift from the paper when done. Cool in the oven an additional hour. When completely cooled, fill with the maple cream, top with a Ferrero Rocher and dust with cocoa powder, if desired.
Maple Cream: Whip the cream to soft peaks. Fold in the icing sugar and maple syrup and chill until needed. SERVES 10

YOU WILL NEED
Gold craft paper and cardboard tube Pinking shears and scissors Double-sided tape
Gold string and gold star sprinkles Christmas note
Ferrero Rocher 1 Cut along both the short edges of the craft paper with the pinking shears. Turn the paper and place a 3-4cm piece of double-sided tape on the long edge and remove the backing.
2 Place the cardboard tube towards the bottom of the paper and roll until it meets the tape. Gently rub along the line of the tape to seal it closed. Cut a length of gold string, ensuring it’s a little longer than the bon bon. Carefully crunch the paper near the edge of the tube and tie with the string. 3 Fold your note and place it inside. Add a Ferrero Rocher and some star sprinkles. Scrunch the open end of the bon-bon and close it with another length of gold string. Make one for each place at the table.
It’s a little bit delicate... When scrunching the ends of the bon bon, take care not to tear the paper.
