Faux Rocher




I love chocolate.

It’s possibly unhealthy how much I love chocolate, but there you are!

Ferrero Rocher are one of my favorite indulgences, so much so that my lovely sister gave me a lovely heart shaped box full of them for Valentine’s.  I haven’t opened them yet…letting the anticipation build!

A friend of mine shared a recipe for a clone recipe.  The original came from Australia (love my Aussie friends!) and asked for packs of nuts and other ingredients without specific amounts included.   With my friend’s help, I worked out the “how much” and then gave the recipe my own U.S. touch.

These aren’t identical to Ferrero Rocher, but they’re a darn good facsimile and will be a lovely Valentine’s treat for me and my sweetie!

Faux Ferrero Rocher

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbs shortening
  • 1 cup chopped lightly roasted peanuts, chopped
  • ½ – 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)



I used Hershey’s, but you can use any combination of milk and dark chocolates.




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.

Nutella
Cover with about ½ tsp. Nutella.




Cover with chocolate nut mix.




Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.




Eat!
Makes approximately 30 really yummy candies.
