Sugar-Free Chocolate Ice Cream 無糖朱古力雪糕

This was my first time making sugar-free ice cream and I prepared the base on New Year’s Eve, hoping it to be my first treat for the new year. It was a total failure as my ice cream was as hard as an ice brick. I had to flip the entire thing out on a … Continue reading Sugar-Free Chocolate Ice Cream 無糖朱古力雪糕

Dark Brown Sugar Nougat with Almonds and Dried Longan 黑糖桂圓杏仁牛軋糖

Here comes another nougat recipe! I was hoping to make nougat with dark brown sugar and dried longan during Chinese New Year and it took me three trials to finalize my recipe. I already have a pretty solid base nougat recipe (sort of) so each time I wanna create another flavor, I just change the … Continue reading Dark Brown Sugar Nougat with Almonds and Dried Longan 黑糖桂圓杏仁牛軋糖

Matcha Nougat with Almonds and Cranberries 抹茶杏仁蔓越莓牛軋糖

This is one of the nougat flavors I made for my relatives and friends during Chinese New Year. The Matcha Nougat recipe I shared last year was a sugar-free version (read about my blog post, Sugar-Free Matcha Nougat with Almonds). This time I made them with regular light corn syrup, demerara sugar with almonds and … Continue reading Matcha Nougat with Almonds and Cranberries 抹茶杏仁蔓越莓牛軋糖

Sugar-Free Matcha Nougat with Almonds 無糖抹茶杏仁牛軋糖

Last week I’ve written a blog post about Sugar-Free Snowflake Nougat which contains nuts, dried fruits and sugar-free biscuits. Dried fruits are high in fructose so are not too diabetic-friendly if consumed in great amount. For that reason, I’m gonna share with my readers a sugar-free nougat recipe that contains only roasted almond. I’ve also … Continue reading Sugar-Free Matcha Nougat with Almonds 無糖抹茶杏仁牛軋糖

Sugar-Free Snowflake Nougat 無糖雪花酥

I’ve finally come up with this sugar-free version of nougat successfully and I’m so excited to share this recipe with my readers! It is a popular snack called 雪花酥 or 雪Q餅 that I would just translate as Snowflake Nougat for now. Snowflake Nougat, from my understanding, is basically just Taiwanese nougat with nuts, dried fruits … Continue reading Sugar-Free Snowflake Nougat 無糖雪花酥

Nougat with Dried Mango and Cashew 芒果腰果牛軋糖

I made nougat the past weekend with dried mango pieces as well as cashews this time. They are basically the same as the previous ones, just with different add-ins. I don’t bother taking new pictures this time so if you would like to see pictures and read about other useful tips, please visit my previous … Continue reading Nougat with Dried Mango and Cashew 芒果腰果牛軋糖

Baileys Ganache-Filled Chocolates Baileys酒心朱古力

I bought a bottle of Baileys and Kahlua at the airport duty free shop when I travelled back home from Los Angeles during Christmas time. Unless I accidentally spill them, the two big 1L-bottles would probably last forever as I seldom drink. I gotta think of more ways to incorporate them into my dessert! I … Continue reading Baileys Ganache-Filled Chocolates Baileys酒心朱古力

Ganache-Filled & Nut-Filled Chocolates 自製軟心及果仁朱古力

Chocolate making is not too hard at all. If you are a beginner, it can be done with a chocolate mold along with some good quality compound chocolates. If you want to get fancy, go get some real chocolate or even couverture chocolate and temper it yourself with the help of a digital thermometer. Couverture … Continue reading Ganache-Filled & Nut-Filled Chocolates 自製軟心及果仁朱古力
