How many of you love these small little monster “Ferrero Rocher” chocolate balls?
I love it! Everytime seeing these exquisite advertisement on Ferrero Rocher, it has just drawn me closer to my own little fantasy lane “making it”.
My aim is to make into a bigger version of Ferrero Rocher Mousse balls. Bigger the better, what do you think?
If you are interested, let’s have a look of my version?
Components you need:
- Chocolate wafer
- Milk chocolate cremeux
- Chocolate cream chantilly
- Chocolate ganache
- Edible gold spray
- 23g rice pop
- 90g Cadbury baking milk chocolate( or any baking chocolate)
1)Melt the chocolate in microwave on high heat, bring out and stir well every 10 seconds until completely melted.
2)Pour in the rice pop into melted chocolate and mix well.
3)Pour into 4 x 7cm diameter of hemisphere silicon moulds. Spread the mixture around the mould to form a thin layer around the hemisphere.(Remember to leave small gap for other fillings)
4)Chill in freezer until completely harden.
Milk Chocolate Cremeux:
- 50g Cadbury baking milk chocolate button ( or any baking milk chocolate )
- 22ml Liddells Lactose free full cream milk ( or any milk)
- 95g Bulla whipping cream ( or any dairy whipping cream )
- 18g egg yolks
- 9g castor sugar
- 9g Western Star unsalted butter ( or any unsalted butter )
1)Put chocolate in a bowl.
2)Bring milk and cream to just boil.Off heat.
3)Beat yolks and sugar til light in colour with hand mixer.
4) Add in half of the hot cream into egg mixture, whisking till smooth. Pour in remaining hot cream mixture and keep whisking until all combined.Return over low heat, stir the mixture and cook till it coats the back of a spoon (or till 82C-84C) [Picture in step 4 ]
5)Switch off the heat. Strain over chocolate. Mix until smooth.
6)Add in butter, mix till smooth.
7)Spread into a shallow tray, cover with cling wrap, leave in fridge to semi-set for piping later. Pour into a piping bag with round nozzle.
1)Once the mixture become semi-set, pipe onto the rice pop mixture to fill up the gap. Arrange and lightly press in 2 whole hazelnuts into the middle of cremeux on 4 separated hemisphere. Leave to set in the freezer for 4 hours.
Chocolate Cream Chantilly:
- 200g Bulla whipping cream (or any whipping cream)
- 4 tsp Hershey unsweetened cocoa powder ( or any cocoa powder)
- 4 tsp castor sugar
1)Beat everything together to firm peaked. Pour into piping bag.
1)Pipe around 4 x 8cm diameter hemisphere silicon moulds. By using a spoon, lightly spread the cream evenly with a spoon to ensure no gap was found otherwise you might see air trap inside the final mousse when peel off.
2)Take out the 7cm hemiphere silicon moulds out from freezer. Remove each hardened mousse from moulds. Gentle press the hardened mousse into the chocolate cream chantilly. Remove excess cream chantilly and smoothed out. Keep in the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight until hardened.
- 150ml Bulla whipping cream ( or any whipping or thickened cream)
- 125g Cadbury baking milk chocolate ( or baking milk chocolate)
- 13g Western Star unsalted butter ( or any unsalted butter)

2)Pour into chocolate. Mix well until chocolate is melted.
3)Stir in butter.Mix well.
4)Allow to cool until 30C.
- 80g hazelnut, chopped finely
1)Take out the hemisphere mousse from freezer, remove from the moulds.
2)Press the chopped hazelnuts all around the mousse.(You can let the mousse bring back to room temperature for few minutes, then press the hazelnuts around to it stick to the mousse)
3)Stack 2 hemisphere altogether into a sphere. Repeat this for making another sphere.
4)Pour the chocolate ganache all over the hemisphere mousse.Allow to drip off excess.
5)Spray edible gold spray all over the 2 spheres Ferrero Rocher mousse. Chill in fridge for an hour before serving.
6)Remember to share with few person.
(a)If you do not have edible gold spray, you can remove from the recipe.
(b)If you preferred more hazelnuts, you can sprinkle more nuts onto the chocolate ganache as well.
(c)This is a crazy idea that I fantasized for awhile, so go crazy with any other ingredients you prefer.
