"Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination… take a look and you’ll see into your imagination.” And so I did, went into my world of imagination, just like the song I love from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. I was inspired by my son to make a cherry nut nougat, who’s been asking me for years to make this… it’s been his favorite candy since he was a kid. How long it’s taken me to make that boy happy. Finally I ventured into this recipe, took a little courage, it’s an Italian Torrone recipe made with pistachios, almonds and dried sweet cherries, dipped in dark chocolate. He gave it a “Standing O” along with my friend, Paula.
Another inspiration, is from my baby girl Madeleine, whose mommy suggested a recipe with pink marshmallow. So, I’m creating a line of “Sweet Madeleine’s” starting with a signature Pink Marshmallow. Dark chocolate surrounds the homemade marshmallow in the molded shape of Madeleine Tea Cakes, sprinkled with pink “fairy dust” (sugar crystals)! These little cuties are shaped like a seashell, fit for a princess. For hazelnut lovers, Hazlenut and Apricot Rochers…toasted hazlenuts tossed with a little sugar and hazelnut chocolate oil, chopped dried apricots, molded with dark chocolate…luscious. And, last but not least French Fruit and Nut Bark, an exquisite dark chocolate bark, sprinkled with toasted pistachios, dried dates, apricots and pomegranate-infused cranberries, a beauty of color and texture… just devine !
“If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it….anything you want to , do it, wanna change the world, there’s nothing to it”. The Pollyanna in me loves this concept. Traveling in my world of tastes, flavors and shapes… humming this song, Pure Imagination… is my little piece of heaven, my way of creating, and bringing pleasure to people with just a little chocolate!
