A Super Simple Sweet Summer Dessert

As a pun lover, I had to resist the temptation to title this “'Ice To 'Eat You”. However, there's actually no official ice cream as such in the desserts below, despite the fact that the recipes include cream and freezers. I say 'recipes' but really I should say 'recipe'; what we have below is one extraordinarily, almost embarrassingly, simple dessert, where one ingredient is simply replaced for another to create a different flavoured version of the same dessert.
When crushing the meringues, don't crush them too finely or you'll lose the lovely crunchiness in the final product. For the alternative version of this dessert, replace the Aero bars with 2 (or more, if you want) 40g Cadbury's Crunchie bars.
