Easy to make and great taste. One of my staples at Xmas and included in every cookie gift basket! Cooking time is "chill" time.


  1. Toast ground hazelnut on medium heat in a pan, constantly stirring.
  2. In a bowl, mix warm nuts with alcohol and sugar and knead into a dough.
  3. If dough is too firm, add some warm water.
  4. Melt the chocolate in a bain marie and temper, if you can.
  5. Form walnut-size balls from the nut-dough.
  6. Dip in chocolate and set on aluminum foil to firm up.
  7. Let cool and firm up for about 2 hours.
  8. Do not chill in the fridge as this will cause condensation moisture and also will ruin the tempering (if you did temper).
