Hello I am back! It got fairly busy the last few months, new job, moving places, issues with the place and recently just went to The States! On top of all that I was with no internet for a while . But now it’s all good and ready to go, I can start blogging again.
Last year I’ve participated in “The Sweet Swap” where you send a sweet treat to other bloggers and received 3 sweets back. It was so much fun last year so I had to do it again! I was on a tough schedule because the day we were flying back was the day the sweets was supposed to be sent out. I was in panic mode and rushing the sweets to make. I feel really bad to the lovely guys I sent them to Penny, Shari and Sally. I always been curious about making Ferrero Rocher but have been putting it off for a while. This was the perfect excuse for me to make them. The sweets I made look horrid and was quite messy. On the plus side I was very happy how they tasted. They taste pretty much like the real thing!
Recipe adapted from here
5 vanilla wafers crushed (coles brand or the arnotts ones are my preference)
120 grams of toasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
200 grams of Nutella
200 grams of good quality dark chocolate
6 tablespoons of neutral oil
1. Mix wafers, hazelnuts and Nutella in a bowl together together. Shape them into small balls about the size of a normal Ferraro Rocher. Place into the fridge until they harden
2. Heat a small pot of water and place a heatproof bowl on top of the pot. Place the chocolate and oil in the bowl.
3. Once the water has boiled gently stir until all the chocolate has melted. Turn off the heat
4. Dripped the hazelnuts balls into the chocolate until it is well coated. Repeat for all balls.
5. Place in the fridge to harden on baking paper. You can turn your Ferrero Rocher into chocolate on a stick but just putting a lolly stick before you pop it in the fridge
Biggest thank you to these people for sending me Sweets!
