I hesitated to post this recipe because there is neither cooking nor baking involved; however, I decided to share it because they are just too tasty not to. This fun idea came to me one day when I noticed a jar of Nutella next to a box of ice cream cones in my pantry. Although they aren't exactly round like the original Ferrero Rocher candies, the taste is spot on! My daughter loves helping with them because they are fun and easy to make, albeit slightly messy. Note: Don't throw out the unused cone tops! Save them for later. You can serve ice cream in a bowl and place one of the cone tops upside down on top of the ice cream.
- 12 ice cream cones
- 1⁄2 cup nutella, approximately
- 1⁄4 cup hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
- 1⁄3 cup hazelnuts, finely chopped
- 8 ounces chocolate
- Cut off about 1 inch of the base of each ice cream cone. Spread a layer of Nutella on top of the cut side of the cone. Press about 1 tsp of the coarsley chopped nuts in the slots on the inside of each ice cream cone.
- Spread a thin layer of Nutella completely around each cone. Set the cones on parchment paper and place them in the freezer.
- Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Stir in the finely chopped nuts.
- Remove the cones from the freezer. Carefully and quickly roll each piece around with a spoon in the melted chocolate mixture, shaking off any excess. Place them back on the parchment paper and put them in the freezer until the chocolate sets.
