Easter Egg Pavlova
Here's a great recipe to make with children. This might cheer them up as it might be difficult time to not be able to see grandparents and family on this Easter weekend.
5 Egg whites
0.25 tsp Cream of tartar
1 tsp Salt
1 1/3 cup Granulated sugar
4 tsp Cornstarch
2 tsp Red wine vinegar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
1 package Shirriff Chocolate Pudding & Pie Filling
2 cup Mini candy-coated chocolate Easter eggs
1/2 cup Chocolate shavings
Preheat oven to 300˚F (150˚C). Using electric mixer, beat egg whites until foamy, then add cream of tartar and salt. Increase speed to high; beat until soft peaks start to form. Gradually add sugar, beating until glossy stiff peaks form. Sift cornstarch over top and pour in vinegar and vanilla; fold into egg whites. Fold in cocoa powder.
Scoop 12 (1/2 cup/125 mL) portions onto large parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Using large spoon, swirl and shape into 3-inch (8 cm) mounds with 1/2-inch (1 cm) depression in centre.
Bake for 5 minutes. Reduce temperature to 250°F (120°C); bake for 55 to 75 minutes or until outside is crisp and dry. Turn off oven, then let stand in oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven; let cool completely.
Meanwhile, prepare Chocolate Pudding & Pie Filling according to package directions. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Just before serving, fill each pavlova with pudding. Garnish with mini Easter eggs and chocolate shavings.
