To Decorate

  • Using an electric mixer, beat cream until soft peaks form.
  • Top each pavlova with whipped cream, a few slices of bananas and a tablespoon of dulce de leche. You may need to slightly warm the caramel in the microwave for 10 seconds so it's runny.
  • Decorate with shaved dark chocolate.
