So yes, Easter was a long time ago. At this point, I'm just about caught up with my 101 Things projects. :)
For Easter dinner, we ate with my parents, my two younger siblings, my grandma, and our frister (friend + sister). My mom asked me to bring dessert (!!!) so I asked how many desserts I was allowed to bring. She said, jokingly, that 4-5 ought to suffice. So I made 4 desserts for Easter for 8 people. And there weren't many leftovers.
Chloe came over to help me bake. 2 of the 4 desserts we made happened to be on my 101 Things list. I didn't take very good pictures because it was Easter and I wanted to spend time with my family.
35. Nutella Hazelnut Truffles. Here's the original:
I have to admit that we left out the hazelnuts (because I'm too cheap for that) and the alcohol (there would be 3 minors at the dinner). These truffles were amazing! I knew they would taste good but I was concerned that the Nutella flavor wouldn't show up. In that case, you might as well just eat the Nutella with a spoon and then eat plain chocolate truffles by themselves. However, we could definitely taste the Nutella; Caleb and I actually like these better than regular chocolate ganache truffles!
60. Make cinnamon chips again. Recipe here:
As I've mentioned before, I used honey instead of corn syrup and coconut oil instead of shortening. They turned out perfectly! And then I made these:
81. Cinnamon Chip Scones
These scones are perfection itself. They were the perfect texture, flavor, everything. AND this recipe makes a good amount of them, too! We made the smaller variety and this was the perfect size.
The last two desserts aren't on my 101 Things in 2014 list, but I thought I'd throw them in here anyway. I made an apple crisp (no picture) and a strawberry tart. It's technically a 'rustic' tart, meaning I didn't bake it in a tart pan. Here's the original:
And here's the one Chloe and I made:
So, not very lovely, but it was very tasty! :)
Love and Strawberries,
