Coffee Pavlovas with Almond Whipped Cream

You don’t have to eat chocolate on Valentine’s Day. It’s true! In fact, these bittersweet Pavlova meringues might better represent your romantic status. And even if not, even if you’re blissfully, nauseatingly in love, the contrast of chewy-crisp meringue with fluffy whipped cream and crunchy, salty almonds will delight you.

For such a simple dessert, these have a lot of love going on.

If you haven’t yet given them a go, Pavlova meringues are a worthy addition to your dessert repertoire. They’re cheap, impressive, easy, beautiful, light on calories, adaptable, and…delicious! Of course they must be delicious. Fill them with whipped cream, or ice cream and chocolate sauce, or citrus curd and berries. Bake the meringue as one big torte, or make individual-sized shells. The basic egg-white-and-sugar mixture can be enhanced with various extracts or in this case, instant coffee. Consider them the pot pie of desserts, ready to be filled with whatever you have on hand.

And if you really, really need to…drizzle them with warm chocolate sauce, it’s OK. Happy Valentine’s Day!
