Chocolate Orange Ice Cream and Pavlova

With the leftover meringue from the floating islands, I made this pavlova. It's basically a crispy meringue exterior with a marsmallow-y interior, topped with whipped cream and berries. To the leftover meringue, I added about 1/2 cup more sugar, 1 teaspoon of vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. I mixed it well, spread it on a parchment lined baking sheet, and baked at 200F for about 1 hour.

The ice cream is delicious. It's chocolate-y/hazelnut-y/orange-y goodness. If I didn't stop him, Dave would have eaten the whole container in one sitting. To the leftover custard from the floating islands I added: the strained milk that the islands were poached in, 2 cups of cream, a bit of cocoa powder, a little sugar, some orange oil, a little vanilla, and a small jar of chocolate-hazelnut spread. I mixed everything really well and then processed it in the ice cream maker. Truly amazing!


  1. Oh my gosh...you have an ice cream maker?! That looks cool...I want one. I will never forget making ice cream out of snow in grade school.

  2. Kristy- I used to love snow ice cream. This ice cream maker was only $19.99 at Home Depot. It needs ice and rock salt to get cold, but it works really well. There is also an ice cream ball that is fun. Kids can roll it around to make the ice cream, no electricity needed.
