Wow.. that title says alot, doesn’t it? But that was what we made in my Chocolate class – Flourless Hazelnut Torte, Wrapped in Milk Chocolate, and Garnished with Candied Hazelnuts. Yummy!!.. and very decadent!
The Flourless Hazelnut Torte consisted of dark Lindt chocolate, butter, egg yolks, brown sugar, vailla, egg whites, salt, ground hazelnuts, and milk chocolate for wrapping. Because its flourless, its supposed to be a little softer, more molton-like in the centre, without it actually being a molton cake. It actually tastes like a decadent chocolate brownie! 🙂
To make the Caramelized Hazelnuts, we used whole blanched hazelnuts, water, sugar, and butter.
Note: The hazelnuts in this torte may be replaced with almonds. It can also easily be made into individual portions.
