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

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 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
