Lime and Macadamia Nut Bark

Lime and Macadamia Nut Bark

Can you believe that I had never made chocolate bark before??  I know, so weird, especially considering that I am a chocoholic!  In my defence, I must say that it is not something we usually make in Italy.  For Christmas, we mostly make nougat.  But bark is so good, so versatile and, let’s face it,…

Cookies and Cream Fudge

Cookies and Cream Fudge

I made this Cookies and Cream Fudge to give to friends as part of this year’s Christmas hamper.  It is so easy to make and it tastes amazing.  My husband is a huge fan of Cookies and Cream anything, so he was over the moon when I made it.  But he wasn’t the only one…

Easter Recipe Roundup

Today’s post is not a recipe. As the title suggests, I will share with you my favourite recipes for Easter. In the Northern Hemisphere, Easter is in spring and many Easter dishes are linked to spring both in produce used and in theme. While we are in autumn down under, the people who migrated from…

BRIGADEIROS

Today I want to share with you a very easy recipe that l have been wanting to make for a while.  A few years ago, my husband came home from work with a couple of little “truffles”.  He said that one of his colleagues had brought them to the office and gave him 2 for…

White Chocolate Passion fruit Truffles

WHITE CHOCOLATE PASSION FRUIT TRUFFLES

I told you I would not forget about you!!  So here I am with a sweet tropical recipe: White Chocolate Passion Fruit Truffles!  I love passion fruit and I think it goes very well with chocolate, especially the white kind, as its slightly tart flavour combines perfectly with the sweetness of white chocolate!  These truffles…

Chocolate Acorns

CHOCOLATE ACORNS

I have seen these on Pinterest and I just could not get them out of my mind.  I think they look really cute and they fitted in perfectly with my fairy theme for Victoria’s birthday party.  I have seen many “recipes” online and they all pretty much use ready made components that get assembled into…

FIAMME DI CIOCCOLATO – CHOCOLATE FLAMES

I am very happy about the recipe I will be sharing with you today.  I have many food related memories of my childhood and one of the sweetest memories is of Sunday mornings.  My parents and I would often have friends over or go over to some friends’ house for Sunday lunch.  My mum would…

CHOCOLATE AVOCADO MOUSSE

Chocolate mousse is one of my favourite desserts.  I think all the chocoholics out there will agree with me: there is nothing better than digging the spoon into a soft, silky chocolate mousse.  Heaven!  However, chocolate mousse often involves raw eggs and/or cream, which means it is probably not very child (and hips) friendly.  Well,…

CRÈME VIENNOISE CHOCOLAT

Today’s recipe is sinful.  It is a chocoholic’s dream.  So… my dream!  While growing up in Italy, I would sometimes be treated to a “ready made” chocolate cream produced by a well known French company and it used to be my all time favourite snack!  Well, this recipe is very close to that cream, only… it is better. …

FRIED NUTELLA

Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso have declared February 5th “World Nutella Day 2013″ – “a day to celebrate, to get creative with, and most importantly, to EAT Nutella”. I usually don’t follow “national or world food days”… not because I have something against them, but I usually forget and cannot keep track of all of these special occasions. …

Italian style Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream

ITALIAN STYLE HOT CHOCOLATE WITH WHIPPED CREAM

Italian winters can be really cold.  I miss the short days, cosy evenings and heart warming food that we used to have during those cold months.  The truth is, it never gets that cold here.  One of the special treats we would have in winter was hot chocolate.  The Italian hot chocolate is creamy, thick and sinful. …
