Soon Baci became a favourite among lovers, and still today all lovers exchange Baci (kisses) on St. Valentine's Day...(they share real kisses as well!)
And today's recipe is entirely inspired by these chocolates, because making them with your own hands at home is fun and even more romantic!
Ingredients for about 30 chocolates:
Nutella 100 g (3,53 oz) (or 150 g (5,29 oz) of milk chocolate)
100 g (3,53 oz) shelled, toasted and peeled hazelnuts
50 g (1,76 oz) of chopped hazelnuts
5 tablespoons of fresh cream

30 g (1,06 oz) of cocoa powder
For the topping
About 30 whole toasted hazelnuts (one for each chocolate)
200 g (7,05 oz) of dark chocolate
