This elegant dark chocolate merveilleux with honey and lavender cream can be served at your next (tea) party.
This is a recipe for Dark Chocolate Merveilleux with Honey and Lavender. Merveilleux are little meringue cakes that are filled with a slightly sweetened whipped cream and coated in dark, dark chocolate shavings.
Two pale and crisp meringues are filled with a lavender and honey infused mascarpone cream (that’s also studded with flecks of vanilla bean) then coated in textured shavings of dark chocolate. They’re not too sweet, perfectly light. If you don’t have the lavender on hand, omit the infusion step, or simply replace it with something else (cardamom or espresso would work perfectly!). They’re excellent served alongside a cup of strong milky coffee or tea.
