New Year + New Start = New You
I lied… I actually don’t believe in the equation above. I think it’s lame to wait until one day out of the entire year to make a change and start something new. That would require a lot diddle daddling until January 1st to do something exciting. Regardless, it’s a new year which means I need to put the pedal to the metal and create some new Nibbles.
I started the year with what I’d like to call the “Anti-Diet Nibble”. Remember, Nibbles are 1-2 bite sweet treats. When something is so small you can indulge and you don’t need to waste time searching for low-fat and “light” ingredients. My mom (#heynanc) always says “go big or go home” and I choose BIG (as in big, flavorful ingredients that pack a big punch).
So my first Nibble of 2017 is… an Italian Canoli Nibble (insert emoji of two crossed out eyes and open mouth). The shell is baked and you can taste the cinnamon and nutmeg. I coated the shells in melted chocolate because why not?! The filling is made from your traditional mascarpone and ricotta cheeses and powdered sugar. The finishing touch is a dusting of powdered sugar and mini choco chips. #utterdelight
I can’t help but quote Josh while eating one of these… “They are so good that I like to eat them with my eyes closed.” I have a feeling I’ll be making a lot of these Canoli Nibbles in 2017… Cheers to a great year, no diets, sugar, going big and Nibbles!
