Thursday was World Nutella Day, a celebration of that wondrous hazelnut chocolate spread made by the Italian company Ferrero. To celebrate, Elizabeth of Sugar Hero made huge Ferrero Rocher candies. These are small balls of hazelnut and chocolate--luxurious bits of joy that are about an inch wide. Elizabeth's version is fully 5 inches across!
They aren't simply enlarged versions of Ferrero Rocher candies. Such a concoction, Elizabeth explains, would not be able to hold together consistently. Instead, she made spheres of hazelnut chocolate mousse and cake that give you the same delicious experience.
