The kids loved the fact that the boring vanilla ice cream had become a frozen Eaton Mess and they had helped make it.
I still do this today and by taking the ice cream out of the freezer a good 5 minutes before serving, it makes a soft, sticky and totally delicious frozen Eaton Mess. It is great for dinner parties especially as it can be made weeks in advance meaning less stress!!
If you would prefer to use chocolate instead of the fruit break up a chocolate bar and add it to the meringue and ice cream. Before serving melt some more chocolate and pour it on top. My youngest son calls this George’s chocy mess!!
To make it easier, use shop bought meringues and fruit coulis!
