Only two more days and then January is already over again. But there’s still not much snow around here. By now I’m looking forward to spring again, but a winter without snow is a bit sad. I’m glad when it’s not on the road, but the fields are more beautiful when they are white and not dry. Maybe February will bring some snow. In March I don’t need it anymore.
Although I am no longer a student, there is still a lot to do in January. Of course you don’t always have time to make very time-consuming desserts. That’s why last weekend we had a quick and easy one. This hazelnut-nougat-banana mousse with Giottos consists of only a few ingredients and is very quick to prepare. I have to admit it had to cool in the fridge for a while, but in the meantime you can do other things. And if you’re in a hurry, or if you’d like to enjoy the dessert right away, you can also leave out the gelatine and just fill in the layers straight. It doesn’t look as cool but it tastes the same.
For the middle layer I added some Spekulatius besides the Giottos. You can also use other biscuits or leave them out altogether. But I still have some at home that should be eaten (had to realize last year that Spekulatius don’t last forever) and after reading that Giottos are inspired by Belgian Spekulatius, I thought this would be a good opportunity to eat some of them. By the way, the dessert is very filling. So you can divide the quantity into 3 or 4 small glasses.
I wish all students a lot of energy for the last exams. February is coming soon. Until then I can recommend a little dessert during the study breaks 😉
