An outstanding decadent dessert, that literally melts in your mouth.
At first it may seem a complicated recipe, but once you understand what you have to do it is really really easy. The most important thing is to have good quality egg whites, so when you separate make sure no yolks get in the whites otherwise they won't whip well.

Once the meringue gets cold you just have to assemble everything and it's done in a matter of minutes. This is the kind of dessert perfect for a family reunion or friends gathering.

Everybody will definitely enjoy this memorable dessert, that's for sure.
