Homemade Ferrero Rocher - No bake truffles that are just like the real thing.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Homemade Chocolates are a really nice gift to give around the Holidays. One chocolate you would often see gifted in Ireland during Christmas is a Ferrero Rocher. Why? Because they are fancy and are what gownups eat. I’m going to show you how you can make your own Ferrero Rocher that you can give as edible gifts, and there is no baking required!

If you haven’t had the pleasure of eating Ferrero Rocher before then let me paint you a picture – they have a crispy chocolate shell coated in toasted hazelnuts that surrounds a soft chocolate and hazelnut center.   And smack bang in the middle is a whole toasted tasty hazelnut. I hope you like hazelnuts!

Fun fact, I was gifted Christmas Ferrero Rocher when I was in school for Valentine’s day. I knew they were from Christmas because they had holly on the package. Needless to say they were stale. Needless to say I still ate them. I’m no fool.

Ingredients

  • 2 cup (10oz/284) roasted hazelnuts
  • ½ Cup (2oz/57g) cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (5oz/142g) maple syrup (agave or honey)
  • 1 cup (6oz/170g) Chocolate, melted
  • 1 cup (5oz/142g) roughly chopped hazelnuts (to garnish)

Instructions

  • Add the hazelnuts into a food processor (keep aside 40-45 hazelnuts for the center) and blend into a fine paste like consistency. It takes a 2-3 minutes.
  • Add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, salt and maple syrup and blend until the ingredients start to stick together, just 20 seconds. You NEED the mix to be sticky and not dry. if it is not shapable then continue to blend.
  • Roll into small balls, inserting a hazelnut into the center. Once they are all rolled, place in the fridge for an hour minimum to set them.
  • Once set, dip each Ferrero Rocher in the melted chocolate. Let any excess chocolate dip off.
  • Then toss them in the chopped hazelnuts and coat them all over. Place them on a tray lined with parchment.
  • Store in the fridge until ready to enjoy. They will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Hi Gemma,
I need to find a machine to keep chocolate heated and tempered while dipping large amounts of truffles and candies. What are these called and do you have a recommendation for one?

Hi Gemma, Firstly, YOU ARE THE BEST! I love your videos. I would like to see more confection making. I need a good recipe for creme and other fillings for filled chocolates and to know whether I should use extracts or oils for flavoring chocolate.

Can we use something else instead of maple syrup?

I love that this recipe is unintentionally vegan! I’ve been missing these delectable treats since I became vegan and came across a Hemispheric chocolate mold while in Japan that would be perfect for making that wafer layer of the ball. Just can’t find a wafer recipe. Any suggestions?

I made these and then placed them in a tuile cookie cup to get that crunch from the original.

I made these again for Christmas-this time I broke off a piece of the hazel wafers and put with nut into chocolate ball-tasted better than crushed hazel wafers
