Hazelnut Truffle

Who doesn't like Ferrero Rocher? I got my first taste of hazelnut, when I ate this chocolate and since then, I am hooked to this flavor. Hazelnut coffee, nutella - yummyyy!!! Add this nut to a recipe and it becomes my favorite. Here is my recipe of Hazelnut truffle . Using the finest quality of chocolate and cream is important in this recipe, because then, you will be able to produce a sublime chocolate truffle, while is light and soft in texture -


Good quality milk Chocolate - 100 gms
Heavy Cream - 40 gms
salted butter - 10 gms
Hazelnut essence - few drops
Hazelnut - 20 gms

  1. Keep chocolate ready in a bowl.
  2. Bring cream and butter to simmer in a heavy sauce pan( not boiled).
  3. Pour this cream onto chocolate and stir cream into chocolate by hand with spatula.
  4. Stir until all the chocolate is melted and it forms a uniform shiny mixture. This mixtue is called "ganache" .
  5. Let the ganache cool down. Add few drops of hazelnut essence into it .Cover the bowl with a cling film and refrigerate it for 6-8 hrs.
  6. After the mixture has completely cooled down and can hold its shape, roll it into small balls.
  7. Use your fingers instead of palm to make balls and roll it quickly into finely choppped hazelnuts.
  8. Store them in an air tight container and consume within 2 weeks.
