Ferrero Rocher Fudge Cake

How has the second week of the New Year been for everyone? Busy is the word that sums up my first week of Jan. Parties, Celebrations, Birthdays and Weddings. I guess the New Year has really taken off on a happy note.

To celebrate the start of 2017, I decided to post this Ferrero Rocher Cake Recipe ( It never got published as I was mad busy during the Christmas Season). If you ever caught their advertisement on how each Rocher is carefully hand crafted, dipped into tempered chocolate and then coated with hazelnuts, I assure you will be tempted to run into the nearest grocery store and grab yourself some of these.

Base of the cake was a crunchy hazelnut feuilletine ( Back by popular request). Even I have to admit that I could just enjoy the base on its own. I’ll be a little thick skin to say it’s sooo good. Second layer was a thin spread of milk chocolate ganache mixed with a little crushed Ferrero Rocher followed by fudge cake, followed by a second layer of ganache + crushed Rocher, then cake and lastly the entire cake was coated with a dark chocolate ganache. Talk about indulgence! You have it right there.

Only comment I had about the cake was the wafer bit of the Ferrero Rocher got a little too mushy when mixed with the ganache. I guess next time, I’ll just sprinkle the crushed Rocher on the top! Other than that, the cake was gone in a split second.
