Hazelnut Fudge Delight 

Print Friendly 

Description:
For those of you who love nuts and chocolate this is a fabulous treat. Since the cake is mostly nuts and eggs it is quite healthy and I use 72% or higher dark chocolate for the fudge so it is not overly sweet. Don’t be scared by the 3c of icing sugar. You need that much to offset the 8oz of dark chocolate. I have made this as a rolled cake but the cake is very dense and cracks easily. For your first try cut the cake into 4 equal rectangles and stack it with fudge between each layer and frost with remaining fudge all round.

Ingredients:
Cake
2c toasted hazelnuts 5 eggs separated
¼c white sugar ¼c white sugar
2Tbsp GF Baking Mix 1 tsp vanilla
½tsp baking powder 1 tsp grated orange rind (opt)

Chocolate Fudge Filling
8 oz dark chocolate 72% or higher ¼ tsp almond extract OR
¾c light cream or soy milk 2 Tbsp Amaretto or Hazelnut
½c butter liqueur
3c icing sugar


Directions:
Line a 10”x15” sheet pan with parchment paper allowing the edges of the paper to come up the sides of the pan. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°. Place nuts on a separate sheet pan and place in oven. Toast for 8 – 12 minutes. Place in a tea towel and rub to remove most of the skins. Allow to cool. Place nuts and ¼c sugar in a food processor and puree until nuts are finely ground. Add flour and baking powder and process again. Set aside.
Whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
In bowl of mixer place egg yolks and ¼c sugar. Beat on high for 3 minutes until thick and pale in colour. Beat in vanilla (and orange rind if using). Add nut mixture and mix well. Fold in whipped egg whites.
Spread batter on parchment lined sheet pan.
Bake at 350° for 20 – 25 minutes. Rotate half way through for even browning. Cool on wire rack. Cut into 4 equal rectangles. Peel off parchment paper.

Chocolate Fudge Filling
Place chocolate and milk in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 1 minute on high. Stir. Microwave for 30 seconds more stirring and repeating until melted and well blended. Set aside.
In bowl of mixer combine butter and icing sugar until a smooth paste is formed. Add almond extract (or liqueur if using). Add about ? of the chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Repeat until all the chocolate is incorporated.

Place one rectangle of cake on serving plate spread with filling to ¼”. Place on another layer of cake and filling and repeat until all cake is used up. Frost the cake with the remaining filling. Chill in the fridge until the chocolate is set. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before serving.
This will easily serve 10 people.

Recipe
Virgin Margarita with Rock Salt Crystals Sole
Category: Drinks
Description: A great way to replenish our body of necessary salt is to make a fabulous crystal salt solution known as Sole. This recipes uses 2 tablespoons of Sole. There is an unlimited potential of Energy released when water and crystal salt combine in this process. By soaking the crystals in filtered water, the negative poles of the water molecules surround the positive ions in the salt and the negative ions in the salt are surrounded by the positive polarized particles of the water molecules. This changes the geometric structure of the water and the salt, and creates something entirely new.
