Nanaimo Balls | The Bewitchin' Kitchen
Nanaimo Balls are a twist on the classic Canadian dessert recipe, Nanaimo bars. Making this sweet confection a bite-sized treat.
These minty chocolate cookies get their flavor from mint extract. Drizzle melted chocolate over the baked cookies to make them extra indulgent.
Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Caramel Thumbprint Cookies
These little cookies combine a fabulous French flavor trio -- chocolate, caramel, and hazelnuts -- into one-bite wonders. To remove skins from hazelnuts, place the nuts on a sheet pan in a 350 degrees oven for about 6 minutes. Then put the nuts between the folds of a terry cloth kitchen towel and rub vigorously.
Named "palmiers" (the French word for palm trees) these ornate confections really do resemble palm leaves. Making them is a labor of love, but not that difficult. Just be sure to allow dough plenty of time to chill.
Cherry Crumb Bars
Thick, moist, and dripping with cherries, these dessert bars are similar to a coffee cake. A sweet drizzle of icing is the perfect finishing touch.
