Valentine’s day is coming and Nocciolata Crème Brûlée is what I’m going to prepare for my family and friends for celebrating the “sweetest” day of the year.
Crème Brûlée is a French dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a layer of caramelized sugar. I flavored this scrumptious dessert with Nocciolata, the delicious all-natural hazelnut spread made by Rigoni di Asiago.
