WHat is a dacquoise I hear you ask??
A dacquoise is a French dessert made of layers of meringue and nut-based meringue, typically almond or hazelnut, that are often filled with cream or buttercream. It's known for its delicate, crisp texture and rich, nutty flavor. We have a couple of recipes on this site as initially it was a way to bulk up a floppy meringue made in the Thermomix, that was until I discovered this amazing method for meringues!
ANYHOO, as Insider Clubbers are getting a discount from the lovely peeps at New Farm Confectionery on occasion, we decided to use their delicious choc coated coffee beans as a garnish for this mocha inspired dessert. Start your engines lovelies. This is a keeper. (Oh and it improves in flavour over time...so feel free to make it a few days in advance of needing it!)
(Then go and try these other similar desserts!)
