Eggnog Milkshake with Peppermint

milkshake eggnog peppermint monstershake delliedelicious donut

My Monster Shake made with eggnog, vanilla ice cream and peppermint! The eggnog is full of Christmas flavors such as cinnamon and nutmeg. I’ve also added some rum to it for an extra kick. This milkshake is a calorie bomb, but who cares when it’s so delicious? It’s a treat for the eye, fun to eat and tastes amazing. 
I made this recipe for a “challenge” that Kverdagsmat is hosting right now. The challenge is about Christmas Spices and I thought that this recipe is a fun way of showing of the delicious spices of Christmas. I just had to add peppermint that screams Christmas for me 🙂
So here it is, my recipe for my Monster Shake with eggnog, vanilla ice cream and peppermint:

Method:
Begin by making the eggnog. 
Whisk together egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until airy and pale in color. Set aside.
Add milk, cream, cloves, vanilla pod and seeds, cinnamon stick, ground cinnamon and nutmeg to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Let it cool slightly. Add one fifth of the warm mixture to the egg-mixture and whisk together. Add remaining warm mixture and then transfer this back to the saucepan. On low heat slowly bring the mixture to 80c, stir constantly. Remove from heat and let it cool completely. Add the rum, cover and place in the refrigerator over night.
Whisk egg whites next day and gently fold them into your eggnog.

Assemble your shake:
Put your glass into the fridge so it gets cold. Once cool, rim the glass with melted chocolate and sprinkle with crushed candy cane. Place the glass back into the fridge.
Prepare your ice cream scoops and place them back into the freezer.
Mix eggnog and ice cream in a mug and pour this into your prepared glass. Take out your scoops of ice cream and place them on top of the glass and add candy cane, sprinkles, marshmallows, donut and straw.
And then people, it’s time to dive into this delicious monster shake. Enjoy 🙂

Fig Marmalade

Figs are beautiful this time of year and my local fruit market had tons of them. So I bought some and decided to do something that would last more than just one meal – marmalade! I mean, who can say no to a delicious and sweet marmalade on top of a creamy cheese?
This marmalade is, as it should be, quite sweet so I’ve added some lemon zest to balance it out a little bit. You can also add a cinnamon stick if you want to give it a more Christmas feel. It’s also perfect as a gift in a cute jar. 

Ingredients:
800 g ripe figs, roughly chopped
1 vanilla bean, split and seed scraped
400 g sugar
juice of 1 lemon

Method:
Put all ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let this sit at room temperature for 8 hours.
Transfer to a pan. Stir over low heat to dissolve sugar. Bring to a boil and let it cook for 45 minutes on low heat. Stir regularly.

I am true pie lover and this is one of my favourites with rhubarb. So I just have to share the recipe with you guys. This is a free-form tart, galette. It holds its own shape and has a super flaky crust. This recipe is enough for 8 servings and I would not recommend you to make a bigger galette if you’re expecting more people. Make 2 separate ones instead.
I’ve filled it with rhubarb, strawberries and candied ginger. It has a tart flavour and with a little bit of whipped cream or ice cream it’s just divine! 
With it’s rustic look and taste it will definitely wow your guest this summer. Read more

My guilty pleasure of all time is a cream filled choux. Is there something better? I don’t think so! (If there is, please let me know 😉 ) This is my first time making choux pastry and I must say, it turned out amazing. So this recipe is perfect for beginners! They puffed up really good and dried out even better. I filled my choux buns with chantilly cream flavored with maple syrup. It was a perfect combination. I had some of them straight away but I also made a chocolate syrup sauce so that I could create my favorite choux dish – Profiterole. When I was younger my mom lived in Paris for a few years. Every time I went to visit her she had bought these little store bought desserts that we had after dinner. And that was 3 small choux buns filled with cream and covered in chocolate sauce. I loved it! Therefore I had to make this today. It was yum and it really gave me a flash back to France and Paris. So here you go, an easy recipe for choux buns: Read more

Everyone loves a good and fluffy chocolate mousse, right? This recipe is rich, creamy, easy and delicious. You can use is in a dessert like this, as a cake filling or just eat it straight from the bowl. Add fresh berries to enhance the chocolate flavour and some nuts for crunch. I’ve used Mille Fiori in this recipe but you can use any honey that you prefer. (The Mille Fiori that I’m using is organic from Italy, I bought it on this site.) I recommend you to use a chocolate of high quality for this mousse.

The Chocolate Dome (Madbloggerudfordringen #8)

chocolate dome chocolate mousse raspberry curd delliedelicious

chocolate dome chocolate mousse raspberry curd delliedelicious

This recipe is something that I’ve created for a food blogger challenge that I’m in. It’s the Danish site Madbloggerudfordringen that is hosting this challenge. This is the third time that I’ve entered a challenge on this site and I love it!. This time around the theme is colours. I was given the colour brown to work with. I could do whatever I wanted as long as you could eat it and the colour that I was given stood out and was the star of the dish/drink. Brown was a bit tricky, I thought it would be easier to come up with something that wasn’t chocolate or caramel, but it wasn’t. So after many hours of brainstorming I decided to go with the “safe” option – chocolate.
I’ve made a dome out of tempered chocolate and filled it with a dark chocolate mousse (flavoured with mille fiori). I serve this mousse with a raspberry curd, toasted pistachio, fresh raspberries, meringues and liquorice powder. I wanted to add some vibrant colours to the dessert just to really bring forward the beautiful dark colour of the chocolate dome. But the ingredients that I’ve added also helps lifting the taste of the mousse. 
This dessert came out great and it looks really beautiful too so I believe that my mission is completed  and I can’t wait to see what the other bloggers comes up with!
