My favourite song then was probably "Barracuda" by Heart bounce

WOW the choccy pav' looks YUMMY cheers thanks Kimmy. Very Happy
Will HAVE to try that one~!

I LOVE chocolate... can sniff out a chocolate candy bar from 50 ft away! Laughing

Forget love, I'd rather fall in chocolate. lol!

In case anyone is interested in trying this, I found an American-type chocolate pavlova recipe

Chocolate Pavlova

Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Ready In: 2 Hours 50 Minutes
Servings: 8

"Elegant perfectly describes this crisp-on-the outside, marshmallow-soft-on-the-inside puff, crowned luxuriously with cream, strawberries and a drizzle of bittersweet chocolate."

Ingredients:

6 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 (1 ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate, melted
3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 (1 ounce) square bittersweet chocolate, melted

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
2. Beat together egg whites, salt, and cream of tartar to soft peaks in a large bowl. Beat in sugar, about three tablespoons at a time, until stiff and glossy peaks form. Sift cocoa and cornstarch over egg whites, and gently fold in. Gently fold in vinegar, vanilla, and melted chocolate.
3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spread the meringue into an eight inch circle. Bake in the center of the oven for 1 1/2 hours until the outside is crispy and the center is soft. Using a metal spatula, loosen the meringue from the parchment paper, and remove to cool on a wire rack. Allow to cool completely, about one hour.
4. Whip cream with the sugar, and spread over the meringue. Arrange strawberries decoratively over the top, and drizzle with chocolate.

Ok here's another Strawberry reference....by the Brothers Johnson .... Strawberry Letter #23 ... a good song to listen to if you were driving around town in a lowrider (yes, I did the whole lowrider scene for a while too, carried a switchblade and all....had to protect myself from all those mexican chicks who thought I was trying to steal their mexican men when actually the guy I was hanging out with was white, just happened to be a lowrider with hydraulics and all on the car...it was the car thing again, remember?....lol) with the windows down on a hot summer day in 1977.... ohh the good old days wearing ben davis pants, tight little tops and wearing orange eye shadow LOLBig

Stained window, yellow candy screen
See speakers of kite - with velvet roses diggin' freedom flight

A present from you - Strawberry letter 22
The music plays, I sit in for a few

Doubt anyone remembers the lyrics, but may remember the tune....

They can do some very artistic things with sniffer dogs now so I would be careful where you put it during the flight!

And your always welcome, aslong as there is a Pav involved .... Barbie....
