Chocolate, more precise, chocolate by brand!
I confess: I buy mostly „no name“ chocolate. As Swiss of course I like Lindt, Cailler, Camille Bloch, Maestrani, but normally I bought Chocolate Frey at Migros (a Swiss supermarket). I prefer chocolate with hazelnuts, almonds or another crispy filling, i.e. Ragusa, Minor.
I tried Spanish chocolate too, but I don’t like it so much. So I was very lucky when I found Swiss chocolate called Xocriolata.
This chocolate tastes quite good and I even suspect it’s produced by a known Swiss brand. For SHF#27 I used this Swiss chocolate, bought in Spain, I made an Italian specialty: Baci (kisses). Really international, isn’t it? ;-)
makes about 20 small baci
50 g milk chocolate (31%)
10 g butter
50 g roasted hazelnuts, chopped
40 g Nutella
20 g roasted hazelnuts
100 g dark chocolate (72%)
Place milk chocolate and butter in a small sized stainless steel bowl. Melt over bain marie. Add chopped hazelnuts and Nutella. Form small balls and add a hazelnut on top of each ball.
Let cool for 1 hour in the fridge.
Place dark chocolate in a small sized stainless steel bowl. Melt over bain marie. Take the Baci out of the fridge, coat with dark chocolate.
Let cool in the fridge.
