  • 30g (2tbsp) caster/superfine sugar
  • 15 whole hazelnuts
  • 50g (2oz) plain chocolate
  • 150g (½cup) Nutella
  • 2tbsp single/light cream
  • 30g (1oz) hazelnuts, toasted and chopped


In a saucepan, dissolve the caster/superfine sugar with 2tbsp water to make a caramel. When it is ready, add the hazelnuts and mix thoroughly. When the hazelnuts are well coated with caramel, place them on a sheet of baking parchment and leave to dry.
In a saucepan, melt the plain chocolate cut into pieces with the cream and Nutella®. Mix thoroughly until well combined then remove from the heat and leave to cool.
Use a teaspoon to scoop up a nut-sized piece of the chocolate mixture. Add a caramel-coated hazelnut and roll in the palm of your hand to form a small ball.
Repeat until all the mixture has been used, then roll the balls in the toasted, chopped hazelnuts. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
