This delicious dessert is made of only 5 ingredients! Torino is known for it’s desserts, hence the name torrone. Torroncino combines the semi frozen dessert semifreddo and the incredible nougat treat torrone. Serve with chocolate sauce for a yummy sweet treat! This recipe from Eataly makes 4 servings.
- 4½ ounces hazelnut torrone, chopped into crumbs
- 3½ ounces dark chocolate, chopped
- 3 large egg yolks
- 1¼ cups heavy cream
- 1/3 cup sugar
Combine the sugar with 1/3 cup water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Pour the mixture over the egg yolks in a separate bowl, and whisk until cool.
Whip ¾ cup of the cream to soft peaks in a small bowl. Fold this and the torrone into the yolk mixture.
Pour into a loaf pan, smoothing the top. Cover in plastic wrap, and freeze until firm, at least 8 hours.
Scald the remaining cream in a small saucepan, and whisk in the chocolate. Place about 1 tablespoon of this chocolate sauce on each plate. Cut the still-chilled semifreddo into 4 slices, and place 1 slice over the chocolate sauce.
Note: The semifreddo can be frozen for up to 2 days. Let soften for 15 minutes in the refrigerator before serving.
