O! M! G! That is fantastic!!!! SO easy too.
I didn't actually HAVE hazelnuts - so I used Almonds. Still YUMMY!!
Very chocolatey, very rich but not heavy.
I did a double mixture and it made 900mls That's a lot!! I have some 100ml plastic tubs I got from a plastics shop and it made 9 of them!
Cost? It would have cost about $8 for the 900ml which is only a little cheaper than the bought stuff, but when you try it you'll agree that this is the GOURMET version!!!!!
Besides - it only has nuts, chocolate, butter, milk, sugar! Not one additive or "stretching" ingredient (like palm oil etc) in sight :-)
HINT/LESSON: in the last 100g tub, I added a teaspoon of coffee. Tasted fantastic! However the coffee should have really been cooked in the sauce as the coffee granules didn't dissolve properly.
HINT: It would also be wonderful with a few drops of orange essence in a tub, or even peppermint
