Valentines Chocolates

75g Blanched Hazelnuts
100g Dark Chocolate (72% Cocoa)
100ml Condensed Milk
1-2tbsp Hazelnut Oil
250g Milk Chocolate (to decorate)
Red Candy Melts (Optional)
I bought some heart shaped chocolate moulds from cakes, cookies and crafts shop . For the large moulds melt 1/3 of the milk chocolate and line the mould using a thin layer of chocolate. Let this set then added another layer.
When the second layer has set put the hazelnuts into a food processor and then add the condensed milk and hazelnut oil. Melt the dark chocolate and add this to the mix giving it a good mix in the processor.

Spoon this into the chocolate lined mould then melt some more milk chocolate to cover the back and smooth over. Then repeat the process until you have used all the filling

Alternatively role the hazelnut mixture into balls and dip in melted milk chocolate. Feel free to decorate with any sprinkles or sparkles you like.

I was also playing around with chocolate transfer sheets also form cakes, cookies and crafts shop which look great on dark chocolate.
