Method

STEP 1

Beat egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating well between additions until meringue is thick and glossy

Bake in a slow oven 140 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until crisp. Turn the oven off and leave the door open slightly ajar to cool. 

STEP 4

Beat cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth then add vanilla and cream, beat until thickened. 

STEP 5

Place one meringue onto a serving plate and top with half the cream cheese mixture, repeat with second layer and remaining cream cheese mixture.

STEP 6

Decorate with Koko Black Milk Chocolate Shavings, chocolate stars and fresh raspberries.
