I didn’t add any sugar but there’s a bit of milk chocolate in there, not that much really. Also I used coconut oil (quite a lot of it) for even more intense coconut flavour. And for helping these sweets to stick together. The almonds I put are more like a decoration but they gave a nice crunch to the sweets. Really basic recipe but sooo delicious. It reminded me of my favourite chocolates  (Lindt, the coconut bonbons), mine tasted as good as them, I promise!

No Bake Coconut Milk Chocolate Sweets

I can’t believe Easter is over and there’s another week off coming that I need to start planning and organising about. I’m talking about the Summer half-term. I do hope the weather will be much better than it is now so we could spend more time outside. And April is almost gone! Seriously? The time does fly. Sometimes I just wish to stop that ( especially the fact that the kids are growing so fast, too fast I’d say). But this is what life is bout, right! OK, I think I need to move back to the recipe now.

This is one of the laziest and tastiest sweets I’ve made. I’m not really into baking and making sweets (on the other side I bake every week), but as we all have sweet tooth I have to make sweet stuff too. Baking is quite precise, isn’t it. Well, I’m the opposite. That’s why baking and me don’t get along (sometimes). 🙂

Hasselback Zucchini with Crispy Bacon

Happy Monday all! I hope you are all having a great start of the week! Today’s recipe is not a vegetarian, but it’s so tasty I could not not share it with you Hasselback Zucchini with Crispy Bacon. And also, my MM recipe is not done yet.:) Life gets busy sometimes, I mean, really busy:-)

So, these are hasselback zucchini with bacon and Parmesan, or stuffed zucchini if you’d like( It’s amazing how many different ways to prepare zucchini are out there!)They’re quite naughty but really yummy so definitely worth the calories. Plus the fact that you’re actually having zucchini makes the recipe half healthy, if that makes sense at all:-) Probably not.

If you can, use pancetta, I definitely prefer cooking and eating pancetta, it’s just tastier and adds a different flavour to your meal. Combined with Parmesan, these two make the zucchini irresistible. They  actually can make lots of thing delicious, you can never go wrong with cheese and bacon, can you!

I have to warn you though, they are not that irresistible when they’re cold. So make sure to eat them straight from the oven, if necessary reheat, but I wouldn’t advice so.

Mines were finished straight away so I did not have that problem.

I had them as an appetizer but they’re quite good as a main as they’re quite filling but at the same time light and fresh(thanks to the zucchini) or as a side.

Here’s what you need for these beauties.

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 zucchini
  • 100g/3.5oz bacon or pancetta
  • 100g/3.5oz grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/392°F.
  2. Make cuts into the zucchini so you can put the bacon, do not slice them all the way through though.
  3. Arrange the bacon into the cuts, season with salt and pepper and place in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  4. Remove, sprinkle the Parmesan and cook for another 5 minutes so the cheese melts nicely.
  5. Serve hot!

Enjoy!
