For the Crust:

  • 200 g finely crushed chocolate biscuits
  • 50 g First Choice Butter, melted

For the Filing:

  • 300 ml First Choice Chocolate Velvet
  • 150 g marshmallows (use white ones preferable and mini ones if available)
  • 150 g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 250 ml fresh cream

For the topping:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 250 ml sugar
  • 1 ml cream of tartar
  • pinch of salt
  • 5 ml vanilla extract

Preparation method:


Grease a 24 cm loose-bottomed pie dish very well.

For the Crust:

  1. Mix together the crushed biscuits and the melted butter.
  2. Spoon into the pie dish and press with a spoon to even out the biscuit crumbs on the bottom and sides of the pie dish.
  3. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.

For the Filing:

  1. Combine the velvet, marshmallows and the chocolate in a small saucepan and place on low heat. Stir to dissolve completely. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Whip the cream and fold it into the cooled chocolate mixture.
  3. Spoon into the crust and set in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

For the Topping:

  1. Combine the egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar, salt and vanilla in a bowl and place on a saucepan with simmering water. The bottom of the bowl must NOT touch the water.
  2. Use an electric hand mixer and whisk the mixture for 7 minutes on high speed over the simmering water until the sugar has dissolved, the mixture is hot to the touch and you have stiff, glossy peaks of meringue.
  3. Remove the tart from the pie dish, place it on a serving plate and spread the mixture over the tart, occasionally lifting your spoon to create little decorative peaks.
  4. Use a blowtorch to scorch the meringue and dust with cocoa (optional).
  5. Store in the fridge for a day or two.
