Christmas is very close and it is time for recipe Number 3: delicious and festive Toffee Nut Truffles! Today’s recipe is inspired by Starbucks’ ‘Toffee Nut Latte’, a long-time favorite of mine! Although it has received some serious competition by the delicious ‘Chestnut Praline Latte’ I had for the first time in New York this year. Another festive drink Starbucks has deprived us of in Austria!
Easter is all about chocolate, but I have a healthier recipe for you today: Gluten-free chocolate eggs made of natural almond butter.
As you may already know I am a big fan of almond butter. I love almond butter cookies, so I thought why not try to make Easter candy with almond butter.
Easter is just around the corner!
Today I have a cute DIY food project for you: Completely edible Easter eggs.
These filled chocolate Easter eggs were so much fun to make and taste delicious! I used semi-sweet chocolate for the shells and filled them with a homemade vanilla pudding, topped with a teaspoon of homemade orange curd. I might never make store-bought vanilla pudding again (sorry Dr. Oetker) because this one tastes so delicious and is (almost) as easy to make!
All of you lovely people suffering from gluten allergy, who have been deprived of the amazing taste of chocolate chip cookies, here is your moment! ;) Apart from tasting simply delicious and being gluten-free these cookies will stay soft for days! Even if you are not on a gluten-free diet, try them you won’t go back to ‘normal’ chocolate chip cookies! ;)
Sorry for being so late with this post! The Christmas madness has caught up on me..
Are you ready for silky, smooth chocolate mousse with chestnut purée, topped with a homemade marrons glacés brittle? This recipe is super easy and quick to make. It is great if you need a last minute dessert for your Christmas party. I would recommend filling the mousse in small cups, as it is quite rich and filling. My mom had these beautiful vintage cups that I’ve used.
This is another recipe for all you marzipan lovers out there! :D
This is not a classic shortbread recipe but the cookies taste buttery, crumbly just like shortbread with a hint of marzipan. These cookies will melt in your mouth. The marzipan and drizzle of milk chocolate adds a festive flair to these lovely holiday treats.
