Hazelnut Ganache Pops

Who doesn't love Nutella? I sure do. It's rich, creamy, and such a treat. Then again, it's much too sweet for me to smother a piece of toast as the label would suggest. Like all good things, it's best in moderation. That's why these little pops are the perfect treat. Rich nutty goodness in a tiny little package.

What You'll Need (makes about 25 pops)
  • 1 1/2 cups of fine (dark or milk) chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup nutella
  • 1/4 cup  and 2 tablespoons of hazelnuts, divided
  • 25 candy cups
  • Optional: Lollipop Sticks & Double-Boiler

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Toast hazelnuts in a single layer for 5-7 minutes
  3. Using a double boiler over medium-high heat, melt the chocolate chunks and stir until smooth and glossy
  4. While that's melting coarsely chop the cooled hazelnuts (or use a food processor)
  5. Mix the Nutella with the melted chocolate until combined
  6. Stir in 1/4 cup of chopped hazelnuts to the chocolate/Nutella mixture (try not to resist eating it all write out of the bowl)
  7. Pour mixture into fluted candy cups, fill about 3/4 of the way up
  8. Top with the rest of the toasted hazelnuts
  9. OPTIONAL: Once set (will be the consistency of fudge) insert lollipop sticks

These are delicious on their own, but are even better when used as coffee or hot chocolate stirrers (if you don't mind pieces of hazelnut at the bottom of your cup).
