If you are looking for a simple yet sinful
dessert, this is it.
Pick up some good,
dark chocolate with hazelnuts and
Whisk together a little
honey and orange zest, laced mascarpone.
Add to that,
And see, if you can score some dainty,
fresh currants at your local market.
Now that you have your
‘Panini Condiment Tray’ pulled together,
you can start grilling.
First I give the sliced brioche, a quick sizzle of
heat with the panini maker.
(you can do this stove top, with a grill pan)
While the bread is still hot, I layer on
A few chunks of chocolate, a smattering of
toasted hazelnuts and a sprinkling of orange zest.
I put a lid on it…and give it another quick hit of
heat. The result, well…
The chocolate melts &
oozes, the hazelnuts are warmed, crunchy &
The heat, even brings out the taste & fragrance of
the orange zest.
I give my dolci panini, a
cloud-like dollop of the honey and orange infused
Mascarpone…maybe even an extra drizzle of
honey and a tasty garnish of fresh currants.
Served on a gorgeous dessert plate…the presentation, is
almost ‘regal’ (thank you Dana!)
Are you with
me here? I think you will find my
chocolate hazelnut currant
simple to make.
