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.

  • 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.

I have made this recipe twice, now. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I am celebrating my birthday and 50 anniversary this coming Saturday and will have some there. Those I have shared them with have really liked them. Both times the recipe has made 38-40.

Hi I can’t wait to make these! Do you suggest salted or unsalted toasted hazelnuts? Blanched or skin on? Thank you

Your Ferrero Rocher look wonderful. I’m a bit leary of making them because of the way my brandied chocolate covered cherries turn out. The brandy breaks down the chocolate…..or fondant, I don’t know. I have a receipe I will send. Maybe I’m using the wrong type of chocolate?????? I use a dipping chocolate I warm up in a tub in the microwave (it’s delicious). My first ever did okay, but the last 2 yrs has been so disappointing and I do not know what I am doing wrong. Please Help!!!
