Where I eat and chill

Pear and chocolate pavlova

Pavlova is one of my favorite desserts, many of my friends know it 😀 As I often had the opportunity to eat some very good ones in restaurants, especially with exotic fruits, I never tried to do it myself. But I wanted to try the pear-chocolate combination that I like a lot with this dessert. Pavlova is different layers and textures, meringue, whipped cream, fresh fruits, and a topping. So I respected this process with a mini-meringue (that I bought because making a perfect white meringue is a difficult task, but feel free to try), I also replaced the traditional whipped cream with a cream cheese mousse, which is lighter and it was a nice surprise because it’s delicious. Light and sweet, this mousse is a perfect twist for the whipped cream. With fresh pears and hot melting chocolate as a topping, I served this pavlovas is jars for the visual twist, and they didn’t last long!

The fruits:

Peel the pears without cutting the top. Cut the 2/3 left of the fruits in small cubes and add the top of the pear on top of the jar with the cubes around.
