    I ended up making a double batch of these, as the first batch I made with ALL SPLENDA, not a good result. So in the next batch I used SPLENDA for baking, with much better results. I need to watch how much "sugar" is in all my baking, but some times, a litttle sugar makes all the difference. That aside, these meringue nests are very good, and I will be making them again.

    Good, but too sweet

    John & Heidi from

    This receipe could be very good, but is way too sweet. Next time I make it I won't put chocolate chips in the meringue, or sugar in the chocolate sauce. The sweetness drowned out the taist of the fruit.
