Strawberry Chocolate Pavlova
Pavlova topped with fresh strawberries, melted chocolate and topped with a delicious cream cheese topping. Super delicious!
I remember one Christmas time, in South Africa where I grew up, my sister made the most amazing Pavlova dessert!
I decided to make my own version of that very fond memory. Just like with all my other desserts, I added a twist. I added Cream Cheese to the traditional whipped cream topping and use it to top the Pavlova, along with strawberries and melted chocolate. Verdict? DEVINE! I loved it!
Assembling this dessert was simply melting some rich dark chocolate and drizzling it over the cooled meringue base (as in the photo below), adding the whipped cream and cream cheese topping and to top it off some strawberries (I used canned strawberries) and then some more chocolate drizzled on the top.. y VOILA!

2. WHIPPED CREAM:
Whip the cream cheese until soft with the sifted icing sugar and gently fold into your whipped cream. Leave in fridge to cool. Drizzle the melted chocolate over your dry and cooled meringue base. Now coop the cooled cream cheese mixture onto your meringue base. Top with strawberries and drizzle with more melted chocolate. Serve IMMEDIATELY! If not your Pavlova will be soggy 🙁
I hope you all have an amazing weekend.. I have a jam packed one ahead of me and although I like being out and about I sometimes yearn for more peaceful, relaxing days ;.)
