Happy New Year’s Eve! For a last minute treat, we’ve made a couple sweet and simple recipes for you!
Let your holiday candy and leftovers work for you. Below, are two dessert/snack recipes that are a snap to put together and likely use ingredients you already have on-hand.
Let bruschetta take a turn as a dessert instead of an appetizer as you top the toasted bread slices with fun-size Nestlé Crunch bars, dulce de leche and sea salt flakes. These are sure to make a fun New Year’s Eve treat!
Ingredients for 20 Crunch Bruschetta:
Half of a 1-pound baguette , cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (20 slices total)
- Olive oil spray or extra virgin olive oil
- 20 NESTLÉ CRUNCH Fun-Size Bars
- 1/3 cup NESTLÉ LA LECHERA Dulce de Leche (squeezable bottle)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes
PREHEAT broiler. Place bread slices on baking sheet; spray or brush both sides with oil. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove from oven; turn off broiler. Place one Crunch bar on each bread slice. Place baking sheet back in turned off oven; allow Crunch bars to soften for 1 minute. The Crunch bar will retain its shape for the most part, but it will be super soft and warm.
Remove from oven. The bruschetta is so good with just a few flakes of sea salt (shown above). It’s absolutely delicious with about 1 teaspoon dulce de leche drizzled over each slice. However you do it, just serve immediately while the chocolate is still warm.
If you are looking for a recipe to enjoy while watching the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day, look no further. One of my favorite food bloggers, Miss in the Kitchen, developed this Nestlé Crunch Bacon-Raspberry Panini recipe (pictured above). It is crazy good and so easy to put together! It makes the most delicious snack, plus, it’s a fun way to use up extra chocolate bars. I’d recommend the sandwich be cut into quarters. A little goes a long way!
Ingredients for 2 sandwiches:
- 4 slices cinnamon swirl bread
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons red raspberry jam
- 1/8 teaspoon ground chipotle powder
- 4 slices bacon, cooked and cut in half
- 4 NESTLÉ CRUNCH Fun-Size Bars
- 1 tablespoon butter
SPREAD two bread slices with 1 tablespoon cream cheese each. Combine jam and chipotle powder; spread over cream cheese. Top evenly with bacon pieces. Place two Crunch bars over bacon; top with remaining bread slices.
HEAT a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat; add butter. When butter is melted, add sandwiches and cook until brown; carefully flip with a spatula and gently press down on sandwiches with spatula. Cook until both sides are browned and chocolate is melted. Remove from skillet to a serving plate; cut in half (or into quarters) to serve.
Happy New Year, my friends!
