Hazelnuts have a slightly sweet and, unsurprisingly, nutty flavour. The crunchy texture makes them a welcome ingredient in bread, biscuits, cakes, and as a tastier substitute for almonds in biscotti. Their subtle sweetness also allows you to be able to reduce the sugar content in your recipes. Here are some of our favourite recipes for when you are not enjoying them as a standalone healthy, nutritious snack.
Bacon, Herb and Hazelnut Stuffing
This is a big recipe because it's designed to stuff a turkey. If you're stuffing a chicken scale down the recipe, cook the rest separately or freeze some for later use.
Chocolate and Hazelnut Trifle
Christmas isn’t Christmas without a trifle! Try this classic using Betty’s Devil’s Food Cake Mix and hazelnuts for a fun twist to impress your guests! Can make a day in advance to help with all the preparations too!
Chocolate Hazelnut Butter Bars
There’s no triple layer rolled in chocolate going on here though; no these are a simple two-step affair; quick to whip up, but flavour-wise satisfy all your chocolatey-nutty cravings.
