Mad for Meringue: 20 Delicious Meringue Recipes

Move over cupcakes, meringues are making a big statement on the dessert front. Similar to the macaron, these fat-free little confections are perfect for sticking to those healthy eating resolutions. Meringues can be dipped in chocolate, combined with fresh fruit or made into a gorgeous cream-filled dessert like a pavlova. Here we have 20 of the most delicious meringue desserts!

1. Black Forest Pavlova With Espresso Cream: Originally from Australia, a pavlova is layers of meringue stacked with thick whipped cream and can be a real show-stopper. This dessert has espresso cream layered with cherries, chopped walnuts and pretty chocolate curls. (via Tanya Zouev)
