5 biscotti, roughly crushed
600ml double cream
125g dark chocolate, broken into chunks 100g Nutella
3 egg whites
100g caster sugar

  4. Beat the egg whites in a clean mixing bowl until stiff, then add the sugar and beat again until you have a thick, shiny meringue.
  5. Whisk the remaining cream to stiff peaks. Gently fold the whipped egg whites and cream into the chocolate, followed by the hazelnuts and remaining biscotti chunks.
