    Does this have to be refrigerated? Does it hold up well for 1-2 days?

      You are kidding, right?? Use common sense. Egg whites and cream are the primary ingredients and should be in the fridge, unless you want a huge mess and to be sick.

    I made this for my book club's Christmas meeting and everyone devoured it! I wasn't sure how it would be, and it was my first time making merengue or pavlova, but it was awesome and I will definitely be making it again! I wouldn't attempt it without a kitchenaid mixer, it made my work so easy! The only tricky part was spreading the merengue into the circle, the parchment kept pulling up. Also, I just made a simple chocolate ganache for the chocolate topping.

I'm in the mood for:
