This week, I had the privilege of guest posting over at Juli’s incredible blog, PaleOMG! To get the recipe for these, simply follow the link at the end of the post. Enjoy!
I know, I know, four layers in one little bite-sized square may sound excessive, but being asked to guest post by one of your absolute favourite people and food bloggers definitely calls for a celebration!
And when there’s chocolate and hazelnuts involved, there can never be enough layers..
There’s the dark, dense, nutty base layer, which is smothered in a thick, fudgy, buttery, decadent mixture of silky smooth hazelnut butter, rich cacao powder, fragrant vanilla extract, coconut oil, almond milk, and maple syrup, then sprinkled with a smattering of toasty, fragrant chopped roasted hazelnuts and finally, generously drizzled with silky dark chocolate.
In one bite, you’ve got the toasty crunch of hazelnuts, the fudgy, melt-in-your-mouth, dark chocolate hazelnut truffle mixture, and a hint of the slightly chewy, nutty base… perfection!
These were inspired by my Ferrero Rocher Truffle Recipe, which, although extremely delicious, are a little time-consuming. Considering the rate at which they mysteriously disappear whenever I make a new batch, I needed to find a way to make them a little faster and easier to make. Well, mission accomplished!
These freeze really well too, so they’re great to make in advance for when you need a sweet treat or for when you’re expecting guests! Just keep them in an airtight container and let them defrost in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
