  • 4 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate, chopped 

  • 4 ounces semisweet baking chocolate, chopped

  • 1/2 cup half and half 

  • 2 tablespoons hazelnut liqueur 

  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped



  • In a double boiler or large bowl over a pan of boiling water, heat both the bittersweet and semisweet baking chocolates until melted and smooth.

  • Remove from heat and stir in the half and half and hazelnut liqueur.

  • Refrigerate for approximately 2 hours, stirring once, until thick enough to hold a shape.

  • Toast the chopped hazelnuts in a dry pan. Place the chopped hazelnuts on sheet of waxed paper. Drop the chocolate mixture onto the hazelnuts by rounded teaspoonfuls. Roll each chocolate truffle lightly on the hazelnuts to coat.

  • Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
