Homemade Ferrero Rocher

Crunchy chocolate hazelnut balls.            

Everyone knows these sweet delicacy and I'm sure that nobody can eat only one of them. I remember me as a child to empty my mum's and grandma's platters. They were my favourite! And now, the time passed and one more of my child legend shattered. I was holding in my hands "mr Ambassador's" chocolates recipe! 
So, what about to get ahead of your childhood myths too my dears?

----------------
Ingredients:
150gr crushed hazelnut wafer biscuits
200-220gr toasted hazelnuts
300gr Nutella
300gr bitter dark chocolate

In a large bowl combine the crushed hazelnut wafer biscuits, hazelnuts, and nutella until well combined.
Chill the mixture in the refrigerator until firm enough to shape, about 30 minutes.
Shape into balls about [you know the size] the size of a teaspoon.
Place balls on a parchment paper, then chill in the freezer until they are hardened, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the chocolate and oil in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring between each burst, until the mixture is melted and smooth. Let the mixture cool slightly.
I drop it on top of each chilled truffle [I didn't want them completely coat], you can dip them into chocolate.
Sheet in the refrigerator until the chocolate coating has hardened, about 15 minutes.

Wish you all a wonderful day ♥

    1. Oups! No oil in my recipe :p I used only bitter chocolate, although the standard recipe speaks about coconut oil. Sorry!

    3. Even better. That's the closest thing to coconut oil I could find anyway: http://www.carroten.gr/images/prods/201203141428420.SUNSATIONS_OIL%20SPF%206.png

  15. I did try them!
    My bitter dark chocolate wasn't as runny as yours. I don't have a microwave, plus I wanted to show-off, so I melted it in an improvised bain-marie made by two saucepans. While the choc was melting, I had the usual cravings wanting to dip my fingers (and then my face). Once it melted completely, it wasn't as runny, so I kept heating and stirring, but it actually started to thicken instead.
    So, instead of a nice smooth coating, all I could achieve was a blob of warm chocolate on top of each Ferrero.
    Turns out it wasn't as bad, as they were immediately edible, without the need to be chilled first. And I just love hot chocolate :D

    This is my (ugly) result: http://d.pr/i/RF01

    Perhaps Annoula can comment on their taste. She was kind enough not to barf.

  18. I made another bunch, only this time I also put some cranberries on top before purring the hot choc. Hell, even my mom asked for the recipe! Of course I gave credit where it's due...
