Cappuccino Pavlova with Sweetened Apples

recipe

A Pavlova not only sounds lovely, it looks gorgeous too. Okay, you might be asking, what is a Pavlova? It is a light and airy meringue-based dessert. Each bite just melts in your mouth. A fun fact: It was named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova. The lovely dessert can be vanilla, chocolate, mint, you pick the flavor. To top the dessert off, add berries, whipped cream, or something that screams Fall. For now, let’s enjoy some Cappuccino Pavlova with Sweetened Apples. Cappuccino Pavlova with Sweetened Apples

It will puff up while baking, then deflate while cooling. The outside is a delicate shell. The inside is soft and fluffy. I love this time of year, everything I make seems to include apples. So it seemed fitting to combine apples with chocolate. The flavors worked perfectly together!

Cappuccino Pavlova with Sweetened Apples

I have had a Pavlova on my Kitchen Bucket List FOREVER. When I received some delicious fudge from Swiss Maid Fudge, I decided it was time to finally make this delicious dessert. It really is not hard to make, and does not require very many ingredients. Adding some Swiss Maid Fudge will add little pieces of happiness with each bite.

Cappuccino Pavlova with Sweetened Apples

Since I have never made this dessert before, I found the perfect recipe on Nigella Lawson’s site. She made the recipe easy to follow. Now I plan to make this recipe a lot in the future. It would be perfect as a birthday cake, yum!!

More specifically, here’s what we have in store for the Fall Wine Walk this year:

WINE

Wollersheim Prairie Fume is a crisp semi-dry white wine bursting with citrus and tropical fruit aromas reminiscent of orange and grapefruit with a hint of sweetness.

Anakena Carmenere is deep red in color. This wine is made in a ripe style of Carmenere, with a nose that offers aromas of red and black fruits, dark chocolate, and Black Forest Cake,  along with spices such as cloves and black pepper. The elegant palate features good integration of fruit and oak from the barrels. The palate is juicy, and the wine has tannins with great acidity leading to a long finish.

COMPLIMENTARY CONFECTIONS

We will also be serving hors d’oeuvres to pair with these wines including Chocolate Dipped Grapes. This year we will be dipping a variety called Witches Fingers, an elongated purple grape perfect for the fall!

SF Choc. MainConquer your chocolate craving with Sugar-Free Assorted Chocolates. You can hardly tell the difference between these and our regular varieties with sugar.

Sugar Free Plain Milk Choc Fudge MainSugar Free Milk Choc Nut Fudge

For those of you on restricted or low-carb diets, Sugar-Free Low Carb Chocolate Fudge is the next best thing. Nut Fudge has the same delicious flavor as the Plain Sugar-Free Fudge, only English walnuts have been added for more texture and crunch. Both options are also low in sodium.

We have an assortment of Sugar-Free Saltwater Taffy flavors that are pulled to perfection and delicious down to the last chew. The secret to making scrumptious taffy is to pull each recipe just the right amount of time and use the best ingredients available. Each variety is flavored just enough to give you a real taste sensation.

Our sugar free candy is not lower in calories but is made with the sweeteners Sorbitol, Maltitol, and Xylitol. These are absorbed into the blood stream more slowly enabling people on a restricted sugar diet to consume products containing them. Our sugar free candy is not made in production areas where products containing sugar are made so there is no cross contamination. However, we always suggest customers speak with their doctor first.
