Nutella Candy: Ferrero Rocher

Picture of Nutella Candy: Ferrero Rocher
Make your own Ferrero Rocher candy with only four ingredients!  If you've never experienced the chocolate hazelnut blss that is Ferrero Rocher, then you don't know what you've been missing.  Fortunately, this homemade version is every bit as good (I even think better), than the store bought kind.  And if you're already a Nutella fan, then you know you're in for a delight.  This is a very easy recipe for homemade Ferreros and tastes like absolute heaven, so I do hope you give it a try!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
  • 1 cup (155g) whole raw hazelnuts - separate out 36 good looking whole nuts for the centers
  • 1 cup (255g) Nutella hazelnut chocolate spread
  • 1/2 cup (75g) crushed hazelnut wafer cookies (I used Pepperidge Farm’s Pirouettes, but any wafer will do!)
  • 1 cup (175g) chocolate: dark or milk - your choice. Use something nicer than chocolate chips. I was really sad I tried this shortcut.

Makes about 3 dozen

In a food processor (or with a knife), chop the hazelnuts finely, but be careful not to process them into a paste.  Although, if you do, might as well keep going and make delicious hazelnut butter and be done with it.   Or don't.  Thirty seconds or so should do.

Repeat with wafers.

Combine half of the chopped nuts with the Nutella and mix well.  Refrigerate.

Combine the rest of the nuts with the chopped wafers.  

You're a third of the way there!

Actually, what caught my eye, was they look like "buckeye"...maybe easily done with a small circle of light colored chocolate...does anyone have any ideas what you could use to make the eye ball?

you may want to use something other than Nutella...

Ferrero shutdown World Nutella Day and its fansite for using "Nutella"...

if Ferrero got wind of this recipe, it'll probably shut it down too...

I've always been a bit disappointed that the store-bought variety is absolutely loaded with trans-fats! Party foul! Surely at that price-point, they could use premium ingredients that would included NO partially-hydrogenated anything. (I've not noticed good things in that regard about Pepperidge Farm products, but the general idea is a good work-around for this admittedly tempting desert.)

Ms. Schooch, Sometimes I wish my tastebuds were dead. Since they are not, I gonna try one or more of your delightful ibles. What is not to like about bourbon, bacon and caramel, throw in some chocolate, for good measure. Make a twinckie! WoW!

I wish I could tell you these were all terrible choices and you should skip them all and save yourself the trouble. But I cannot. They are all delicious. As are the Krispy Kreme Donuts. . . . Sorry!
I'm gluten free. Any suggestions for cookie replacement?
I'd gladly share it on Pinterest.
scoochmaroo (author)  SaintSalvage1 year ago
You can leave the cookies out altogether - just add more crushed hazelnuts!
I MUST try this. Thank you SO much!
Nice photos btw!
Oh, I missed you so much! Delicious!!!!!!
Wow...just awesome :). Thank you for sharing your awesomeness.
These look awesome!
You have brought Heaven in my kitchen
