* There are no easy substitutes for the Almond Crème and Pistachio Crème without completely changing this dessert – you can use a Nutella or caramel or chocolate sauce instead. The Hazelnut or Amaretto vinegar reduction adds nice sweet and tangy nuttiness to the dessert. Any fruity vinegar reduction or a drizzle of an Aged Balsamic will provide the tangy balance needed for this sweet dessert. All the highlighted products can be purchased at Oil & Vinegar stores.
