…for the hazelnut cream:

Put 500 grams of whole milk chocolate, 300 grams of sliceable nut nougat, 200 grams of Nutella & 100 grams of dark chocolate into a non-stick frying pan & gently melt over low heat while stirring constantly.

    1. Be iuns gibt es die im Edeka Center sowie im Rewe. Da gibt es ein Regal mit vorwiegend osteuropÀischen Produkten, da stehen sie drin. Vielleicht gibt es sowas bei Eurem Supermarkt auch?!
