Total Time: 45 min


3 oz whole hazelnuts
2 oz Grand Cru Milk Baking Chocolate Jivara 40%
2 oz Grand Cru Dark Baking Chocolate Caraibe 66% 
7 oz Condensed milk
1 tbs honey



  • Place the whole hazelnuts in a 300°F (148°C) oven for about ten minutes. Let cool slightly and then remove skins. (Or use already blanched hazelnuts)
  • Place the hazelnuts in a food processor and grind until you obtain a paste (depending on the type of food processor used, this could take 10-20 minutes. The mixture will begin to warm as it spins and gets smoother).
  • Melt the Valrhona Baking Chocolates to 105°F (40°C) and add into the food processor.
  • Bring the condensed milk and the honey to a boil then add ⅓ of this mixture into the food processor. Continue mixing, gradually adding the remaining milk-honey mixture.
  • Store in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving.
