When I am craving something rich, I always think about chocolate truffles. These small chocolate truffles can be made ahead and are great for a party. They have a firm consistency that lasts and you can make them with different coatings, such as unsweetened cocoa powder, roasted almonds, or melted white chocolate. Arrange them on a pretty platter and serve them with your favorite after-dinner drinks! This rich chocolate dessert is very tempting and elegant, I promise!
Cheesecake is a popular dessert at our house. Since I love chocolate, I usually make chocolate cheesecake. But when my mother came to visit us recently, she suggested that chocolate is too strong for her and she would love to have cheesecake with fruits. Also, she is afraid to eat desserts that are huge (aren’t we all?), so I prepared cheesecake bars and the size was perfect for her. This is how strawberry-walnut cheesecake bars became such a family favorite and are always prepared to welcome my mother and to start her vacation in a decadent mood.
The following dessert was inspired by the classic peanut butter chocolate bars. There are many popular desserts made with peanuts and chocolate, but I wanted something more unique. This individual tart is made with oatmeal crust that is first baked blind. The chocolate is poured after that and a small amount of peanuts add some crunch, taste, and visual effect. It became my favorite, because the chocolate-pudding filling is so delightful, creamy, and velvety. It reminds me of the best chocolate mousses I have tried during our family foodie trips!
I have added crunchy hazelnuts and traditional crème anglaise. Overall, the fudgy brownies, paired with ripe fruit and a creamy sauce, are so delicious!
This is my new twist on the classic Italian combo of melon and prosciutto.
These are foolproof recipes that you can count on.
