My Baci with a difference are ready. Different because they are round with the hazelnut in the middle.  So I am renaming them Kusse in honour of my German family, Ninette Manasco


  • 100 g whole hazelnuts
  • 200 g Nutella
  • 40 g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 160 g 70% dark chocolate


1. Place 20 whole hazelnuts to one side

2. Chop the rest and place in a bowl with nutella and cocoa. Mix onto a dough

3. Form 20 balls incorporating the whole hazelnut in the middle.

4. Place in the fridge on a lined tray for a couple hours

5. Melt dark choc 1 min in microwave and dip balls in it with the help of 2 forks and return to lined tray.

6. Place back into the fridge and let it dry before handling
