It is not news to anyone that hazelnuts are a sensation in the world of confectionery. They are loved by almost everyone, especially when they appear together with chocolate, as in the case of Nutella. To our delight, this ingredient can be used in different ways and always gives a special flavor to desserts.
Want to know how to take advantage of the versatility of hazelnut? I made this list with several recipes that make them stand out! All of them are delicious and the level of difficulty of each one varies a lot 😉
NOTE: if you want to make your own hazelnut cream for some of the desserts, just take a look at the recipe that is also available here on the website.
Crispy chocolate and hazelnut pie
The contrast between textures is always one of the things that I value most, both in sweets and also in savory. If you also love to find crispness with creams full of flavor, this is the perfect recipe! The hazelnut base with caramel and the cream, also of hazelnut, form a wonderful combination.
I confess that the preparation of this recipe is a little complicated, but it is practically impossible to resist these profiteroles. The mass is the same as that used for pumps, but in a different format. Filled with caramelized hazelnut whipped cream and chocolate ice cream, this dessert will leave you sighing!
Chocolate and hazelnut bread
The chocolate and hazelnut bread is so soft that it even crumbles in your mouth. This recipe is perfect to be consumed during the afternoon coffee, along with a cup of tea or coffee. In addition, the filling is made with both hazelnut cream and small pieces of the ingredient, bringing a different texture to the candy 🙂
Special creme brûlée
Do you like to play with the classics and turn them into something new? This crème brûlée recipe gets a new face when you receive a new ingredient: hazelnut cream! The result is delicious and can be served at any meal of the day.
Ferrero Rocher Pie
Ferrero Rocher is that sweet that can please all tastes! After all, the flavor of the hazelnut and the crispness of the chocolate is a surefire classic combination. How about enjoying this delight and turning it into an incredible mousse pie? Hazelnuts also appear in the base of the pie, making the recipe even more delicious.
Can’t resist the creamy desserts? If your answer was yes, you can now prepare to make this mousse. For the recipe, you will only need two ingredients: hazelnut cream and fresh cream! As a finishing touch, I caramelized some hazelnuts to put on top of each jar.
This hazelnut fudge is super simple to make! You won’t even be able to make up the excuse that you can’t execute the preparations. In addition to being very quick to make, it yields several tiny portions. It’s a great dessert to eat if you just want to sweeten your mouth, you know?
Bar of chocolate and hazelnuts
Just thinking about caramelized hazelnuts and chocolate ganache makes my mouth water, and you? These two ingredients together and in a sucrée dough of dark chocolate can get even better!
