    1. Preheat the oven to 120 C / Gas 1/2.
    2. Whisk egg whites until quite stiff then add all the other meringue ingredients: vanilla extract, white wine vinegar, cornflour and 100g caster sugar. Gently continue whisking until you can form stiff peaks. Put meringue mixture on a sheet of baking paper. Spread into a slab a couple inches thick - not too flat!
    3. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1hr and 15 minutes. Remove to cool. Break into pieces.
    4. Simmer the clementine pieces with the Bailey's and the 1 tablespoon caster sugar until syrupy, about 5 minutes. Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave. Whip the cream.
    5. Now you can serve up: Put the clementine mixture into the bottom of a wine glass, then a dollop of cream, add some syrup, drizzle with the melted chocolate, add some more meringue pieces. ENJOY!:)
