Chocolate Hazelnut Deliciousness
Well hello, my lovelies. Hasn't it been a while? Even though I have continued to create delicious morsels, it has taken a certain telecommunications company a ridiculously long time to sort out our internet situation in our new home. However, good things come to those who wait (and goodness knows how long it feels I have waited!) and here I am again. Just to make up for such a long absence, I am going to share with you one of my favourite recipes for a sweet fix - naturally, chocolate-based.
This Chocolate Hazelnut (faux) Fudge is easy as pie, and even easier than that. It combines two of my most favourite ingredients, dark chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. Both of these ingredients are just too fabulous on their own so you can only imagine how wonderful they are in combination. The reward you receive for such a small amount of work is to die for....beautiful dark squares bejewelled with crunchy hazelnets. Oh, yes please!
The thing to keep in mind with this recipe is that even though I have used hazelnuts (I just happened to have them in the pantry at the time), any nuts that take you fancy would suit. I am yet to try with pistachios but love the idea of the visual aspect, bright green contrasted against the dark chocolate...amazing!
