Home made fererro rocher forPurvi

I actually wanted to make this post on the 27th of Jun. That was on Purvi's birthday. But I got so held up with the celebrations that I did not have time for anything else. After that I got a bad flu that refused to go away for nearly 5 days. Even now I am not in the pink of my health. But then, I could nor delay the post further. So I pulled myself out of my blues and sat down to make this post.
As I mentioned before, Purvi turned three on the 27th of jun. Like last year, we had small get together for about ten kids and about a dozen adults. Me and S had a lot of fun planning and arranging the party. But this there was something different. Unlike the last two years, even Purvi had a lot of fun. She wasn't weepy or claustrophobic as she was during her previous birthday parties. Seeing her walking around with that twinkle in her eyes made our hearts leap. I guess all the efforts that went into the birthday party was totally worth it.

This time I thought of making something different for Purvi. Something more than just clothes and toys. That is when I decided to make these Ferrero Rocher like truffles. Actually I wanted to make them since the time I had seen the recipe here. But I was just waiting for the right occasion. And what could be a better occasion than your child's birthday. I knew she would like these as she loves chocolates (surprise!!!) Needless to say she did. But the surprising thing was, even S liked them as much as Purvi. The father daughter duo just wouldn't stop eating these. I literally had to fight them off so that I could photograph a few of them. 

This recipe for chocolate and almond balls, apart from having only five ingredients, is literally a breeze to make. The only difficult part was rolling the nutella and wafer mixture. With all that chocolate on my hands, I felt like a kid again. But apart from this, these truffles are simply fabulous!!!

Home made fererro rocher recipe
Preparation time: 45min+chilling time
Makes- 25-30 truffles

Hazelnut wafer biscuits: 100gm, crushed
Toasted almonds- 150gm, finely chopped
Nutella- 200gm
Dark chocolate- 150gm (I used bournville)
Oil- 1tbsp

  • In a large bowl, combine the chopped almonds, crushed wafers and nutella and mix well. Cover and allow the mixture to chill in the refrigerator for 30min.
  • After the mixture is chilled thoroughly, scoop out a heaped tsp of the mixture and shape them into balls. Cover and allow the balls to harden in the fridge for 30-45min
  • Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler with oil and let it cool.
  • Using a toothpick, dip each truffle in the melted chocolate and place on a plate. After all the truffles are coated with chocolate, allow them to set in the fridge. You can either coat the truffles once or as many times as you like for a richer chocolate experience!!!
