Gianduja squares

Recipe time. I mentioned these the other day and so here, let me share my vices with you.

Chocolate hazelnut little freezer square candy thingies





Ingredients
  • 100 grams of milk chocolate
  • 100 grams of roasted unsalted hazelnuts
Tools
  • Grinder/blender
  • Molds (like these silicone ones, or little candy papers--something you can peel back)
  • Freezer

Chocolate, hazelnuts, a grinder and a candy mold laid out

Put the two ingredients into the blender cup:

Grind them into a sticky paste:

Pour into your little molds or candy papers:

Put them in the freezer for a while:

Unmold for handy eating.

The gianduja is really soft and melty, so store any uneaten ones in the fridge or freezer (they're delicious and still very bite-able when frozen). You might actually want to use a fork to eat them.

If I liked nuts in chocolate, these would be irresistible! Glad to see that you have time to play, now.

Definitely not for you! Fifty percent nuts in here.

The free time is great, but I could wish for the motivation to do something with it that doesn't involve irresistible excess calories.

It's as natural reaction after all the physical and nervous energy your bedroom project must have consumed.

That's a much nicer way of looking at it!
