Nutty Refrigerator Cake

IMG_6081

One of the great things about the holiday’s are all the new limited time holiday flavors several companies come out with. I’m one of those people who love flavored coffee, of course being pregnant I’m limited now to decaffeinated, but it’s all the same once you add all the yummy flavors to it. I’m a huge fan of Torani Syrups! They have tons of flavors to pick from and I just love that they keep coming up with new ones all the time.

With over 120 flavors in Regular and Sugar Free varieties, Torani flavored syrups are perfect for flavored lattes, mochas, coffees, cocoas, Italian sodas, teas, lemonades, cocktails and smoothies.

The Sugar Free flavors have no calories and are sweetened with Splenda. Now, Torani flavored syrups are widely available at retail so you can easily create authentic coffeehouse quality drinks at home.

I decided to use the Hazelnut Syrup in a super easy dessert recipe that you can make in advance for when all those holiday guest pop in!
