Pavlova versus Lego Men

Last night's dessert was a huge hit. So much so, that it was devoured in one fell swoop. Not one measly crumb left for tonight, boo! ;)




I started by making a pavlova (which is basically a chewy meringue and, apparently, the national dessert of New Zealand...). This particular recipe - which comes from Nigella Lawson - had cocoa powder and balsamic vinegar added...




We topped it with whipped cream



And strawbs



And my personal favourite - raaaaspberries ;)



And - for the pièce de résistence - some chocolate Lego men




I bought the icecube trays from the http://www.lego.com/ shop last week




And those little chocolate Lego men are just too dang cute!




Have a super sweet Saturday! :)

I love people like you. :) I NEVER would have occurred to me to use ice cube trays for CHOCOLATE. Using them for baby food blew my mind.

It looks very good. Should I ask if you ate their little heads off first? :)

The Lego men were very yummy - I used plain, dark chocolate. And yes, Elisa, I did bite their heads off first...very satisfying! ;)
