Thanksgiving is next week and the holiday party season is about to kick off. The next 6 weekends are going to be jam packed with social engagements…and among the pressing issues to resolve are:
- What to wear?
- What to bring the hostess or host?

The Good Stuff
In the spirit of holiday time selflessness, I took it upon myself to hunt down some recipes for you. Either to make and give to your hostess/host…or print out for them to make themselves 😉
The Really Good Stuff
Going one step further, after looking at a 3 different recipes for chocolate hazelnut spread, I decided to make them all and pick the winner. One was oil based and frankly tasted it. The end result was oily (surprise!) and gritty. Thumbs down. Next I tried a cooked version. This was better but a bit fiddly. Like Baby Bear’s porridge, number 3 was just right. Creamy and glossy, great aroma & flavor…Yum! And I’m certain it will lend itself to adaptation very nicely – Macadamia Nuts, different chocolates. Oh, the possibilities 🙂

Either as a printed recipe or made all the way…any of these make great partners with the appropriate serving pieces above.
Are you the entertainer or the entertained over the next few weeks?
