Chocolate Hazelnut Streusel Bread with Salted Caramel Sauce
Enjoy this chocolate quick bread with a steaming cup of coffee. It’s a perfect afternoon pick-me-up; you’ll swoon over the crumbly chocolate hazelnut streusel and buttery salted caramel sauce! And it’s such an easy recipe- no mixer required!
Hey guys! How was your weekend and all? Phew mine was really exciting. So many fun things!
Ok so I’m a big dork and a total Instagram noob- I had my IG set to share with my personal Facebook and not my Baking a Moment page. So if you are following me on Facebook only, then you probably didn’t see any of what I was up to this past weekend. Sad face. Unless! You are also following me on Twitter or, of course, IG.
Enough of that nonsense! It’s all fixed now but the bottom line is, I had an incredible, unforgettable time at the Better Homes and Gardens Cooking Experience. Dude, they rolled out the red carpet. It was so. much. FUN! And now I am totally behind because I just couldn’t even.
Here are a few of the highlights:
After all that excitement I think I just need to chill out with a hot cup of coffee and a nibble.
What do you think of this bread??? Is it just about the most incredible bread you’ve ever laid eyes on? Can I even call it bread? Let’s be honest, it’s cake. Right? I mean I adapted it from my favorite muffin recipe, but there’s chocolate. And caramel. The only excuse I really have for calling this a bread is the fact that it’s baked in a loaf pan.
What we have here is a dense and uber-chocolatey quick-bread/muffin/cake, studded all throughout with pockets of melty chocolate chips, heavily encrusted with a crumbly chocolate hazelnut streusel, and drizzled (don’t hold back) with gooey salted caramel sauce. It’s the stuff of dreams, I tell you.
You can use any kind of salted caramel sauce you may have on hand, but I highly recommend this recipe. It comes together in about 15 minutes flat and it’s so buttery and rich. It makes a great homemade gift too! Try it; I promise you’ll never go back to the store-bought stuff.
Hope you enjoyed, my friends! xoxo

Whip up this easy No-Bake Guinness Chocolate Cheesecake mousse this St. Patrick's Day! The roasty, malty flavors of stout beer pair perfectly with rich chocolate, and the crunchy pretzel crust provides a great balance.
- 2 1/2 ounces chocolate covered pretzels
- 1/2 cup cold heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Finely crush the pretzels in a food processor or mini-chopper. Place about 2 tablespoons of the mixture in the bottoms of six 5-ounce jars or beer-tasting glasses.
Place the cream cheese, brown sugar, and cocoa powder in a medium mixing bowl, and cream together until smooth.
With the mixer running on low speed, slowly drizzle in the dark stout beer.
When all of the beer has been incorporated, pour in the cream in a slow and steady stream, while mixing on medium speed.
When all of the cream has been added, turn the mixer up to medium-high and whip until the mixture holds stiff peaks. (Be careful not to overwhip, or the cheesecake mousse could become runny.)
Divide the mixture evenly between the six serving dishes.
Whip the cream and sugar together until the mixture holds soft peaks.
Top the cheesecakes with the whipped cream.
