“Cocoa nibs taste like this cool mix of chocolate and espresso,” says Joy Wilson. The bitter nibs give this Pavlova a hit of chocolate flavor. “I eat it with a cup of mint tea to get a mint-chocolate-chip situation,” she says.

  1. 3 large egg whites, at room temperature
  2. Pinch of salt
  3. 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  4. 3/4 cup sugar
  5. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  6. 1 teaspoon bourbon
  7. 3 tablespoons cocoa nibs (see Note)
  8. 1 ounce bittersweet chocolate, melted
  9. 2 cups raspberries
  1. Preheat the oven to 300° and position a rack in the center of the oven. Draw an 8-inch circle on a sheet of parchment paper and invert it on a baking sheet.
  2. In the bowl of a standing electric mixer fitted with the whisk, beat the egg whites, salt and cream of tartar at medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in the sugar at high speed until the whites are stiff and glossy, 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla and bourbon. Add the cocoa nibs and beat until just incorporated. Spread the meringue on the paper in an 8-inch round.
  3. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, until the surface is dry and lightly browned and the center is still a bit soft. Let cool completely on the baking sheet, 30 minutes.
  4. Transfer the Pavlova to a board. Drizzle with the chocolate and top with the raspberries. Cut the Pavlova into 8 wedges and serve.
