I LOVE sugar so I’d love to exchange recipes of sugary treats - I’ll start with my two favourite ones for the moment, but I’m definitely expecting yours!
Having somewhat developed an intolerance to my favourite highly-processed food (come on, all this hydrogenated fat cannot be so bad!), I had to find a substitute. Thankfully Thermomix UK has created this amazing Chocolate-Hazelnut spread - if you don’t have a Thermomix a blender and a saucepan will do
To make about 500mn (I usually double the recipe as it keeps in the fridge)
100g granulated sugar
100g blanched hazelnuts
100g plain chocolate
1/ Grind the granulated sugar (10s/ speed 10) or use icing sugar
2/ Grate the chocolate and hazelnuts into a fine powder (20s/ speed 10)
3/ Add the milk and butter and mix yet again (10s/ speed 7)
4/ Heat for 3mn / 50C/ speed 2 - for non-Thermomix users cook in saucepan at medium heat while constantly stirring.
SALTED CARAMEL SPREAD
This is my other Nutella substitute - so so yummy, I could spoon-eat it all, naughty me! Here as well this makes about 500ml and I slightly more than double the recipe, which also keeps in the fridge.
75g salted butter
100g brown sugar
250mn double cream
For Thermomix users: Put the whip in place, cook butter +sugar for 4mn / 100C/ speed 1 (lid off). Add the cream and cook for 40mn, 100C, speed 1 (lid off).
For non-Thermomix users: mix buter and sugar for 4mn at medium heat, constantly stirring; add the cream and cook at high heat for another while, until the texture thickens, still stirring all the time - this will take some time sorry…
