Crunchy! Chunky! Nutty!

jaykat Apr 6, 2008 09:40 PM

As usual when planning a menu (in this case, passover) I start with dessert. I have 2 desserts so far, both of which are smooth and creamy: chocolate olive oil mousse and orange-almond flan.

Now I want something to contrast - something with a lot of *crunch*. What I don't want is one of those flourless cakes using ground almonds as I dont think that will be quite crunchy enough. I am thinking more along the lines of panforte, or this "Chocolate Walnut and Prune Fudge Torte" that I found on the Epicurious site: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...

It doesnt have to be chocolate, but does need to conform to passover guidelines, ie no flour etc. We are not kosher otherwise so dont mind using butter, etc.
