    Chocolate Baked Alaska

    There is something magical about Baked Alaska. Break through the crisp shell of marshmallow-like meringue straight from the oven, then tuck into still-cold ice cream.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 3 minutes to 4 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • 2 chocolate brownies (from a pack of 6 Waitrose Belgian Chocolate Brownies)
    • 1-2 tbs Waitrose Belgian Chocolate Sauce
    • 2 small scoops Waitrose Seriously Creamy Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream
    • 2 small scoops Waitrose Seriously Creamy White Chocolate Ice Cream
    • 2 egg whites
    • 50 g caster sugar


    1. Preheat the oven to 230C, gas mark 8. Place the brownies in the base of 2 flameproof ramekins and pour the chocolate sauce over. Top with the ice cream and return to the freezer to keep cold.
    2. Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks, whisk in half the sugar until glossy, then carefully fold in the remaining sugar. Remove the dish from the freezer and pile the meringue mixture over the ice cream, making sure there are no gaps and the ice cream is thoroughly covered.
    3. Place the dish in the preheated oven for 3-4 minutes, or until the meringue is tinged with golden peaks, taking care not to let it burn. Serve immediately.
