Baci

DSC_0421

Baci (in Italian means kiss) is a famous Italian chocolate brand. I love their chocolate balls but unfortunately they are not sold here in China. Good thing my mom has this recipe which reproduce them quite well. It’s easy and I am sure you will all love it!

Ingredients (for 40 Baci):

  • 1 cup hazelnuts (250 g)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate (250 g)
  • 1/2 cup Nutella (200 g)
  • 1/2 package of chocolate wafer

Place hazelnuts in a food processor.

and mince them finely.

In a bowl place nutella, minced hazelnuts and with your hands slowly crumble inside the wafer

With a tablespoon mix all the ingredients together.

Get your hands slightly wet and using the chocolate cream make some small balls. (having some water on your hands will prevent the mixture to stick on your fingers)

In a double saucepan – meaning in a bigger saucepan pour in some water, then put a smaller one inside the bigger saucepan and place on heat. In the saucepan on top, the smallest, place the chocolate……..I realize you didn’t need me to explain you this-

melt chocolate and drop in the chocolate balls so that they can get all nice and covered.

Let the chocolate dry and serve!
