Instructions for the Homemade Chocolate Bons:
…for the milk cream:
Melt 200 grams of white chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave. Next, heat up 50 milliliters of milk in a microwave or in a small saucepan, then add 50 grams of skimmed milk powder and stir until smooth with a whisk.
Pour the hot milk to the melted chocolate and stir together with a spoon until you got a thick & viscous cream. Finally, fold in 50 grams of roasted & chopped hazelnuts & then put the cream in the fridge for about 2 hours to cool.
…for the Chocolate Bons:
Get the chilled milk cream from the fridge, use a teaspoon to spoon out a bit cream & squeeze together with your hands, then form small balls or eggs between your palms.
Next, stick a toothpick into each egg and put it aside, repeat for the rest of the milk-cream. Then melt 150 grams of milk chocolate over a bain-marie or in the microwave.
Afterwards pull the Choco Bons through the melted chocolate one at a time, allow drain a bit and then stick them into the surface of a shoebox to harden. Remove the toothpicks after hardening and serve the chocolate pralines.
I wish you lots of fun baking 😉
