Eton Mess Eton Mess.

I don’t pretend to understand how my mind works, but when I was recently given a bar of Hotel Chocolat Eton Mess, I thought “Wouldn’t it be great to make Eton Mess with Eton Mess? A kind of Eton Mess Eton Mess?” Catchy name, I know.

So I did.

I took a punnet of hulled strawberries and a handful of raspberries and I mashed them with a fork

I added a measure of Howard’s Of Kent Blackcurrant Hit Vodka.

I left them to macerate until tea-time.

When we had stuffed ourselves with supper, I whipped 300ml of double cream until stiff.

I melted the Eton Mess  and added it to the cream.

I poured over the macerated boozy strawberries.

I folded it all in gently.

I then crumbled six meringue nests- shop-bought. M&S I think- over the top and folded those in too.

I served to a ridiculously grateful audience and revelled in my genius.

Crazy genius. Eton Mess Eton Mess. Eton Mess Squared if you like.
