Step 1: Gather the Ingredients
The ingredients I used were:
- 5, 13oz containers of Nutella
- 1, 72oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate (I used chocolate chips, but chocolate bars can be used *as long as it's semi-sweet*; it's just more convenient to melt chocolate chips)
- 1, 8oz bag of chopped hazelnuts
- 7, wafer bowls from Carvel (or any ice cream shop)
Each Mega Rocher took 2 wafer bowls, 1 container of Nutella, and an un-measured amount of semi-sweet chocolate and chopped hazelnuts for the core and outer layer.
I used wafer bowls for the crunchy part of the Mega Rocher because it was the best way to get the crunchy texture so familiar to an actual Rocher.
Step 2: Create a Double Boiler
In a nutshell, a double boiler consists of a pot of water boiled on the stove top, and a smaller pot or bowl, that uses the indirect heat from the boiled water to cook/heat the ingredient(s).
For my double boiler, I used a coffee pot, filled with water, a ceramic bowl, and a strainer under the bowl to prevent it from sloshing round in the water.
