21  COOKING / Dessert / Faux Ferrero Rocher on: February 19, 2009 06:46:10 PM
It's been ages since I posted something new!

Here's what I made my sweetie for Valentine's.  He's a generous man and shared.  Of course, he also values his life and rarely gets between myself and chocolate. Wink

These are not identical to Ferrero Rocher, but they are a really yummy substitute.


Faux Ferrero Rocher

    * 1 cup milk chocolate chips (I used Hershey's, but you can use any combination of milk and dark chocolates.)
    * 1 cup dark chocolate chips
    * 1 tbs shortening
    * 1 cup chopped lightly roasted peanuts, chopped
    * 1 cup hazelnuts or macadamia nuts (the real thing uses hazelnuts)
    * 1 (13 oz.) jar of Nutella
    * miniature muffin tins and liners (approx 1 1/4″ size)

Line miniature muffin tins with wrappers.

Place chocolate chips and shortening in a microwavable bowl. Cook for 3-4 minutes.  Remove from microwave and stir, adding chopped peanuts. Mix thoroughly.

Place small teaspoon chocolate nut mix in base of pan or wrapper.

Place a nut in center.

Cover with about tsp. Nutella.

Cover with chocolate nut mix.

Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.


Eat!

Makes approximately 30 really yummy candies.

Note - I might put a little more Nutella in them next time and I'm thinking about refrigerating before putting the nut in so I get a more "filling" like texture.

That's fantastic!  Please let me know how it goes and what your grandmother thinks.  Smiley
