Elettra Wiedemann is a former fashion model whose blog and new cookbook, both titled "Impatient Foodie," feature shortcuts and recipes for busy people who want delicious meals. Wiedemann's recipe for Lotte's Mess was inspired by a woman named Lotte whom Widemann met in Sweden and combines meringues and ice cream for an easy treat.


  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
  • 2 cups roughly chopped mini meringues
  • 1/2 cup chocolate sauce
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce
  • Whipped cream
  • Berries in season
  • Cooking Directions

    In a large bowl, combine the ice cream and meringues, using a large spoon to mix well.

    Drizzle the chocolate sauce and caramel sauce over everything, followed by a slightly obscene amount of whipped cream and finally the berries.

    Serve immediately.
