Peanut Butter and Jelly Chocolate Truffles
Simply fill the molds using hardened chocolate scrape on the top and leave it for a few minutes. Pour it, and then scrape clean. Wait for a few more minutes to set it up. When ready, get a zip lock bagpipe containing a small amount of jelly; squeeze the filling into each mold. Don’t forget to top the mold with chocolate, which serves as a sealant. Afterwards, start piping in some peanut butter through each mold and fill with the excess chocolate scrape.
Put the chocolates in a bowl and pour it with hot cream. Leave it for one minute then stir until it smoothens. After this, start spreading the hazelnuts onto the baking paper. Place some sugar, water, and glucose syrup in a saucepan. Don’t stop stirring the mixture until the sugar dissolves. When completely dissolved, begin brushing the sides of the pan until it becomes golden then pour it over the hazelnuts.
Pipe the Nutella into your mold and freeze it overnight. The next day, cut it into squares. Dip the frozen Nutella cubes into the tempered chocolate. You can use a fork to scoop the cubes.
