1cup (130gr)Roasted hazelnuts*
2/3cup (100gr)70% Dark chocolate bar
2Tbsp maple syrup (or honey as a not vegan option)
1Tbspunsweetened cocoa powder
Roast your hazelnuts if they are raw, this step will take 10 minutes more: preheat the oven to 350F and spread the whole hazelnuts, in a single layer, evenly over a baking tray. Roast in the oven for about 8 minutes or until the hazelnuts are lightly colored and toasted.
Melt the chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water; cook gently, stirring occasionally, until melted, 2 to 3 minutes. If you have a microwave: Place chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted.
Keep aside 12 whole hazelnuts for the centre and add the rest into a food processor. Blend until chopped into small pieces.
Keep aside 2 Tbsp of these coarsely chopped hazelnuts for the coating.
Keep blending the rest of hazelnuts into a smooth paste. This takes 1 or 2 minutes.
Add cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, 3 Tbsp of melted chocolate and a pinch of salt. Blend again until the ingredients start to stick together, you want a moist and sticky mixture.
Roll the paste with your hands into small balls and insert a hazelnut into the center.
Place the balls in the freezer for 5 minutes to harden.
Add the 2 Tbsp of chopped hazelnuts to the melted chocolate (just make sure the melted chocolate is still runny and melted) and mix well.
Once the balls are set, dip and roll them in the chocolate and hazelnut mixture and place them on a tray lined with parchment paper.
Freeze again for about 5-10 minutes and then you can enjoy your homemade Ferrero Rocher.
Store in an air-tight container, in the fridge. They should keep for about 7 days.
