Comte Lorentz G, a friend of us, once asked via social media for “Coco-Hazelnut-Brittle with Chocolate Fill”. I found this so funny that I decided to create something similar but lighter for him. Coco-hazelnut-brittle is terribly unhealthy! We like pudding too, dear Lorentz, here is my awful delicious variation for you. – Why is brittle so unhealthy? To make it it needs tons of sugar. Sugar produces acid in your body which can cause very bad diseases. So, dear Comte Lorentz, please do prefer this dessert! I am quite sure you will love it.
Melt coconut oil in a small pan (at a very low temperature), add the cacao butter and stir simmer the mixture. Once it is melted and liquid set the pan aside. Add the almond butter and mix well.
Add cacao powder, xylithol and salt and mix until it is a smooth cream.
Place in the fridge for at least one hour. Take it out and with the help of a spoon get a bit of the mixture out (it might still be solid) and form truffles. Roll in cacao powder. Return to the fridge.
Rectangular Cookies (Mille feuilles)
I admit that making a mille feuilles dough is very messy and takes a long time. So I decided to buy a high quality dough in the supermarket of our choosing where they only sell organic food. Great!
Cut rectangles, spread with coconut flakes, ground hazelnuts and raw cane sugar. Bake for about 10-15 minutes (180 ° C with fan, 200 ° without). The cookies should have a nice light brown colour.
Let them cool and serve with the chocolate truffles. Enjoy with tea or with a glass of dessert wine, dear Lorentz and dear readers. This is how heaven tastes!
