Hazelnut Cookie Bites

October 9

You may notice that these hazelnut cookies bites are quite similar to the last recipe that I posted. You would be correct. They are both cookies and both chocolate + hazelnut flavoured. In fact, the recipe that these are based off of came up while I was searching for biscotti recipes a couple of weeks ago. On top of the random google searching that I was doing, I also went to all of my favourite blogs to see if there was any biscotti recipes to build off of. In my searching, I came across the recipe that these cookies are based off of on 101cookbooks. They didn’t look like biscotti to me but I instantly decided that I wanted to make them as well. In the end, I gifted both the biscotti and these cookie bites (and kept some for myself of course!).

Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti

October 3

I was invited over to someone’s house for dinner this past weekend. One of my first thoughts upon being invited was, “Yes, I get to bake something!” After spending a few days thinking about what I could bring as a ‘thank you’, I decided that these chocolate hazelnut biscotti were the perfect option. I took a few things into consideration to make this assessment:

    -First, everyone loves chocolate and hazelnut (right?!).
    -Second, the biscotti are super easy to pack up and transport. Avoiding a mess on the subway (and in my purse) is essential.
    -Third, I am confident that most people can eat these every day, with a cup of their favourite hot beverage, and never get sick of them.
    -Last, they freeze super well, which means you aren’t forcing someone to eat tons of dessert if that’s not in their regular routine (although I would have no trouble finishing them off).

triple hazelnut ice cream

Triple Hazelnut Ice Cream

May 1

It’s birthday time! Every year since I started this blog, I’ve posted the sweet treat that I make for my partner’s birthday (apparently I also use the exact same candle in the photos every year). He’s not into traditional birthday cake, so I always try to make something different, especially delicious and a little over the top. It needs to be special. Normally, I make something that has a nostalgic feel to it. Two years ago it was a bienenstich cake that harkened back to his days working at a German bakery and last year I made chocolate babka, which was something that we both loved growing up. This year, I decided to go with ice cream. Without a doubt, it is his favourite sweet food. Of course, since I was making it from scratch, everything was possible in terms of the flavours and add-ins. I decided to play around with chocolate and hazelnut and ended up with this triple hazelnut ice cream.

chocolate and hazelnut granola recipe

Chocolate and Hazelnut Granola

April 10

I’m officially obsessed. I saw this recipe on My New Roots and knew I had to make it right away. Why have I never thought of chocolate granola? I have certainly put chopped chocolate into my granola before but I really haven’t made the wet part of the granola recipe chocolatey. Let me tell you, this has revolutionized my granola universe! I knew that when I was making it and the wet mixture smelled and looked like brownie batter, I was in a good place. I was in an even better place knowing that there wasn’t even anything particularly unhealthy in the recipe: coconut oil, maple syrup and cocoa powder, how can you go wrong?
