The spectacular Baking Bites has created an amazing recipe featuring our Rodelle Vanilla Beans: Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Semifreddo with Chocolate Curls!

“A semifreddo is a type of frozen dessert that is similar to ice cream, but doesn’t need to be churned in an ice cream maker. They’re usually lightened with whipped cream or a meringue before freezing. This semifreddo is made with a combination of Greek yogurt and mascarpone cheese, and the tanginess of the yogurt is a nice contrast with the rich, creamy mascarpone. A whole vanilla bean is scraped into the semifreddo to give a wonderful vanilla flavor. Slice the semifreddo with a hot knife to serve it, and garnish it with chocolate curls.”

This month, Baking Bites teaches us how to make delicate chocolate curls:
“You can make chocolate curls with a vegetable peeler by running the blade of the peeler down the side of a block of chocolate. Use the peeler on a flat side of the block, and experiment with the amount of pressure you need to get a clean curl. Shaving the chocolate more quickly will create fine chocolate shavings instead of curls.”
