Ingredients

  • 0.5 cup cocoa powder 
  • tablespoons cup heavy whipping cream 
  • 0.3 lb chocolate dark (compound or couverture)
  • 0.5 tablespoon grand marnier 
  • 20  hazelnuts whole with the skin
  • tablespoon milk 

Equipment

  • food processor
  • bowl
  • sauce pan
  • baking paper
  • oven
  • wooden spoon
  • kitchen towels
  • spatula

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 220 C/450 F.
  2. Place hazelnuts on an oven tray and roast until the skin cracks and the hazelnuts colour a little but not too much.
  3. Place hazelnuts in a tea towel or kitchen paper and rub them against one another to remove most of the skin.
  4. Place hazelnuts in a food processor and blend to a powder.Bring cream and milk to the boil in a saucepan and on a low heat, stir in chocolate until it has all melted. Stir in hazelnut powder and Grand Marnier.
  5. Transfer preparation to a bowl and refrigerate for about 30-40 minutes, during which time you need to stir it two or three times with a wooden spoon. It will stiffen like thick icing.Stir chocolate mixture again before spooning it into the piping bag. Pipe small mounds of chocolate, about the size of a twenty cent piece or shape the mixture with a teaspoon. It is easier to do this on baking paper. Refrigerate truffles for about 30 minutes.
  6. Place cocoa in a bowl. Using a spatula, lift each truffle and roll in the cocoa. To obtain a round shape, roll the coated truffles rapidly between the hands without pressing too hard. Then roll the truffles again in the cocoa and refrigerate until required.
