Making homemade chocolate almond Snickers bars for the inaugural Sweet Swap
This cake almost killed my food processor! Sponge cake filled with a delicate honey buttercream, topped with crunchy hazelnut nougatine makes for a lovely tea time treat.
I made chocolate truffles for a few food blogger friends and played with the idea of creating chocolate and macadamia truffles, unfortunately the chocolate overpowered the macadamia. But stay tuned as I’ll continue to experiment with flavours to create more yummy chocolate creations.
The second lot of desserts I baked up for Dario’s food photography session. Chocolate and hazelnuts are a match made in foodie heaven. This tart was discovered on my recent trip to San Francisco where I discovered the wonderful joys of Tartine Bakery.
