Truly delicious and so easy to make.

  • Mix the hazelnuts and milk in a pan and bring to the boil.  Cook for 5 minutes, by which time some of the milk will have evaporated.
  • Remove from the heat, add the powdered milk, hazelnut oil and blend to form a smooth and even mixture.
  • Break the chocolate into squares and put straight into the mixture.  After 2 minutes it will have melted and you will be able to beat the mixture with a wooden spoon till smooth.
  • Keep in a sealed pot in a cool place.

  • Grate the chocolate and melt in the bain-marie – do not allow the temperature to exceed 50°.
  • Cut the cellophane into strips of about 10X10cm.
  • To ‘temper’ the chocolate, leave it to cool to 27/28° then re-heat to 31/32°.  This operation is necessary to prevent the cocoa butter from separating out from the cocoa mass.
  • Using a spatula, spread stripes of chocolate onto the prepared cellophane.  At this stage you can choose between making them  thicker or thinner and wider or narrower;  in practice the thicker the band the more curls you get while the thinner the band the more broken bits.

  • As soon as you have rolled out the chocolate, roll the cellophane to make tubes 1 to 2cm in diameter.  Leave to cool on the tray.
  • When the chocolate has hardened, unroll the cellophane.  Now you can make your curls or use the thickest as tubes provided you only rolled the cellophane once.
