Hazelnut Dark Chocolate


Do have a go at making these Hazelnut Dark Chocolate treats at home. It’s an easy and fantastic recipe from Tessa Kiros’s Apples For Jam cookbook. If you love Ferrero Rocher, you should like this recipe as it’s just dark chocolate and hazelnut basically. Anyway, to make this delicious treat, you just need chocolate wafer or biscuits, roasted hazelnuts, chocolate hazelnut spread (Nutella), and dark chocolate. Try it.

Hazelnut Dark Chocolate (Hazelnut Chocolate Balls)

Ingredients

16 Pieces Loacker Hazelnut Bite Size Wafer Cookies
250 g Roasted Peeled Hazelnuts, chopped quite finely
About 180 to 200 g Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
250 g Dark Chocolate

Method

Crumble the cookies into a bowl and the hazelnuts and about two-thirds of the hazelnut spread to start with. Mix together until it all looks a bit like mud cake. Try rolling a small portion into a ball, if it breaks up; mix in more chocolate hazelnut chocolate spread until it will hold a shape. If the weather is hot, put the mixture into the fridge for a while before rolling.

Line a tray or large flat plate with foil. Roll slightly heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture between your cool palms into compact little balls. Put them on the tray and into the fridge for an hour or so to firm up.

Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler, making sure that the water doesn’t touch the top bowl. Remove from the heat and let the chocolate cool for a few minutes. Drop the balls in one by one, turning them around so that they are completely covered. Return them to the tray, where they will flatten a bit on the bottom. Let them set completely, even in the fridge for the first half an hour or so if the weather’s hot. Bring them out to room temperature and store in a tin in a cool dark place (or in the fridge in hot weather). They will keep for a couple of weeks.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
