No Bake Chocolate Cornflakes Cookies

One of my favorite childhood memories are making these really easy, no bake chocolate cornflakes cookies: Yes, they are so easy, even a toddler can do them – there will probably be a mess, of course, but looking at the kitchen after I have been baking, I must admit that I haven’t changed much in…

Rustic Swiss Caramels with Pistacchios

Swiss Caramels are a classic Swiss sweet treat that are not unlike fudges in taste but crumblier and have more “melt in your mouth” texture – you usually get them at autumnfaires and they really are quite addictive. In this version I added some salted pistacchios to the caramels – if you like the combination…

Apple Crumble Cheesecake Bar with Homemade Caramel Sauce

It’s apple time!! With about 16 kg apples eaten per year per capita, apples are by far the most popular fruit in Switzerland! So this is my version of combining the love for fresh apples with a bit of the American influence I’ve taken on over the years; I made Apple Crumble Cheesecake Bars! Creamy,…

Chocolate Tartelettes with Pistacchio

Today, I made these little heart shape chocolate tartelettes with pistaccios. I used heart shaped silicon moulds, but you can also use a lined muffin tin as an alternative, this will, of course, leave you with round mini-tartelettes instead of hearts, probably somewhat like my dark chocolate tartelette recipe with a white crust, which you…

Caramel Sauce

Lately, I have been practicing my caramel sauce and this Swissmilk recipe variation I had the best experience with. It also is immensely variable; depending on how long you let it simmer at the end you can use it as a sauce topping on ice-cream or dessert or as a bread spread topped with banana’s…
