There is a big party going on in the Kochtopf. One big party? Not really, we are talking about weeks of parties! Dear Zorra is celebrating the ninth birthday of her blog. Can you imagine that she is already nine years blogging?
And so the weeks are filled with events and surprises. For the monthly Blogevent she asked us to create recipes which use a hand blender or hand blender with or without accessories like a mini chopper. This time it is an easy task.
During our holidays in Alsace I bought a glass chocolate spread with nuts and crunchy caramel. It was a delicious treat, which I could eat with a spoon without bread. Being back at home I decided to make my own version of this spread.
And already the first try was a success! The Spread taste of roasted hazelnuts and semi sweet chocolate, with finely crushed caramel, which slightly crackle when I eat it. A perfect treat for a birthday breakfast.
- 150g sugar
- 100g hazelnuts
- 75g semi sweet chocolate
- 50g coconut oil
- 1 Pinch Salt
Caramalize sugar in an pan while stirrig constantly. Pour the caramel on baking paper and let it cool down. After it cooled, place in a mini chopper or blender and crush it to powder.
Roast the hazelnuts until golden. Transfer in a tea towel and rub until they loose their skin. Place in the mini chopper and mix until a fine hazelnut meal has formed.
Melt Chocolate and coconut oil, mix with hazelnut meal, caramel power and salt. Fill in glasses and store it cool til serving.
