Homemade Ferrero Rocher

Homemade Ferrero Rocher

(adapted by La casa de vainilla from here)

100 g hazelnut wafer biscuits, crushed
150 g toasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
200 g Nutella
150 g dark chocolate
4 1/2 Tbsp oil

Combine wafer biscuits, hazelnuts and Nutella in a bowl. Leave in a fridge for about half an hour and then shape into small balls. Again, leave in the fridge to harden.

Meanwhile, in a double boiler, melt chocolate with oil. Using a toothpick, dip each truffle into melted chocolate and leave on a plate. After you’re done with all the truffles, leave them in the fridge. I coated them only once, so I had a lot of leftover chocolate. Seemed more like the original with the bumpy texture, but if you wish, you can coat them as many times as you like.

Makes about 25 truffles.

      They’re not the same. But are made out of the same ingredients. And when you eat them taste is very close.

    I tried the rafaello link, too, and got this error message, “The page you’ve requested can not be displayed. It appears you’ve missed your intended destination, either through a bad or outdated link, or a typo in the page you were hoping to reach.” Just FYI :D

    Ferrero Rocher uses milk chocolate…does the dark chocolate with the oil…produce a similar taste? Im not a huge fan of dark chocolate…should i substitute milk chocolate for the dark…?

    • Marija

      Sultana, I have no idea, but seems to me that it should work.

      Oh, I don’t know what else :( I you can find any other wafers use them, or try crumbling ice cream cones they’re like wafers.

    Hi. I found this recipe via pintrest. What are you all using as the oil. I usually use olive or coconut. Thanks for the recipe. My fav treat but so expensive in the store.

      Hi Priscilla! Thank you for visiting!

      I use sunflower seed oil (it has neutral taste that’s why, you can use maybe some other).
