Time for another "copycat"-post. As always, I'm incredibly tempted by other blogger's recipes, and here's the latest ones I've tried. Funny, all are for sweet things...
Chocolate Oblivion Truffle Torte, from Heidi at 101cookbooks
Oh my god. Make this. It's incredible. It's like one, huge chocolate truffle. Amazing texture. And so easy to make! Don't be intimidated by the instructions - it really was a breeze. Even the unmolding was simple! I used a 9-inch springform rather than an 8-inch, and it came out perfectly allright. This is a recipe I'll save and cherish. It's heavenly.
French Toast from Oslo Foodie
I happened to have a half leftover baguette when I woke up on Sunday morning, and I remembered having read this wonderful recipe a couple of weeks ago. I immediately whipped up a batch for breakfast. Yeay! I did omit the powdered sugar, and instead topped mine with my fave: maple syrup. And cinnamon. It was really yummy, and went very well with coffee.
Crazy Cookies from Farmgirl Fare
Great cookies! I made these for a work event, and everyone loved them. I substituted white chocolate rather than butterscotch chips, and dark chocolate for the milk... and I used walnuts. (Pecans are nearly impossible to come by here.) I got a lot more cookies than Farmgirl did - close to fifty! Not that I'm complaining, more cookies is always a good thing.
