Yoghurt Choc Strawberry Meringues


What a combination !

I bought {yeah, I'm too lazy to make them myself}, meringue nests at the supermarket during last week. At the time I had no idea what I wanted to use them for and the packet sat on the kitchen counter asking me everyday ".. what's your plan with us..?".

When I looked at them this morning, I thought today is the day. First I baked a Strawberry Bread and had quite a few strawberries leftover. I know, just a week or so ago, I mentioned that all the strawberry recipes were starting to drive me crazy. But who can walk past a punnet of bright red strawberries and not wanting to buy some. Not a question, a statement!

Right, the name of the recipe start with Yoghurt Choc - here's where this come in:

I started off with melting 4 TB Yoghurt Chocolate together with 1 1/2 TB Coconut Oil, added about a teaspoon of the Melted chocolate into the bottom of each of the meringue nests and placed it for 3 - 4 minutes in the freezer to set.

Meanwhile I hulled and chopped 1/2 cup of Strawberries, placed it into a small saucepan, added 2 TB of Sugar and brought it to boiling point over medium heat. I then added 2 t Cornflour and stirred continuously until it thickened.

I removed it from the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes and then topped the Chocolate in the meringue nests with the strawberry mixture.

What a treat ! and SWEET - I only managed two but between Roy, Jacobus & Dimitri they were all gone 15 minutes after serving. {they did not expect the Yoghurt chocolate in the center and were quite surprised - I guess in a good way, as all these meringue nests disappeared in a flash}

Change the chocolate flavor, add more chocolate and less strawberry mixture - just as you wish, but I found the Yoghurt flavor gave this a bite of sourness and together with the sweet strawberry topping this was just right.

Be good and keep baking, cooking, crafting ... and sharing!
