Cocoa dusted hazelnuts


Author: Aušra

Date:

Once girls from Kaunas invited me to join small party called “50 cocoa shades”. I scrolled a lot of recipes and tried three of them, but only one was the one (others were good enough to eat, but just it). These nuts are very contagious – you start to nibble and forget to stop. They are not too sweet, you perfectly taste hazelnuts, so I liked them very very much.

Cocoa dusted hazelnuts

Time needed:
Yields: 8 servings
Calories: 160 kcal / 1 serving

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 2 cups hazelnuts (or other nuts, almonds suits perfectly too)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla sugar
  • 2 tbsps. cocoa powder
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup, golden syrup or honey
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • For nut coating:
  • 2 tsps. cocoa powder
  • 2 tsps. icing sugar

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 135˚C. Line baking tray with silicon mat or baking paper.
  • Mix all ingredients, except nuts, in a bowl. Then add nuts and mix to coat them. Pour into the baking tray.
  • Bake in an oven 35-40 minutes, mixing every 10 minutes. In the end of baking be carefull and watch out of nut burning (everytime I bake 40 minutes, but didn’t met this situation).
  • Leave nuts to cool in a baking tray. Then sprinkle them with cocoa powder and icing sugar mixure, mix well.
  • Put hazelnuts in a beautiful bowl. Leftover of cocoa and icing sugar put in a small jar – you can use it again if nuts will start to stick.
  • Enjoy!

Šokoladinis cukinijų pyragas

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

One more cake with zucchini. Really great and moist. I didn”t have chocolate chips, but I didn”t miss them in the cake. Maybe with these chips the cake would be more delicious, but also more sinful 🙂

Sūrio tortas

Cheesecake

This year we met at home only with kids. So the preparation for the evening wasn’t much. This cake in all recipe sources got a lot of compliments. I agree with them – it’s really good and simple. I used 26cm cake form. And I really suggest you to warm the mascarpone and condensed milk mixture, because if you won’t do it you’ll get lumps when you pour gelatine (Then I had to put the mixture in a warm bath and wait till mixture warms and lumps dissolve).

These healthy muffins are extremely moist and delicious.

Migdolinis tortas su maskarpone "Hello Kitty"

Almond cake with mascarpone “Hello Kitty”

I’m happy and proud. This cake is not just tasty but very cute 🙂 It was made for my daughter’s 5th birthday. But presenting it only now because somewhere at this time my blog is celebrating 3 year old birthday and at the same time I celebrated my birthday anniversary. But this year birthday was different – I didn’t do anything, just celebrated 🙂

Burokėlių, anakardžių ir fetos sūrio salotos

Beetroot, cashew and feta salads

Don’t know why but this autumn I’m hooked on beetroots. Every weekend I boil some beetroots and through the week I incorporate them in our dishes. And then story repeats. When I wanted for dinner something light, I prepared these salads. By the way, this recipe in the book is called carpaccio, but I think it’s more salads, and the name is more usual and not so fancy 🙂 . Family girls enjoy them, the big boy ate them and just said that more balsamic vinegar would be better, and the little boy as always, prepared some theater and then ate them, just without enjoyment. So I remember these salads as they are fit for girls 🙂 And I prepared very similar salads with hazelnuts, and they were very good too. So as always – don’t be afraid to experiment and correct ingredients by your refrigerator or cupboard products.
