Ferrero Shot Glasses Recipe
Serves ≈ 22.

Praliné (Hazelnut Spread)
10 ounces (300g) whole hazelnuts
8 ounces (200g) sugar.

Using Caramel a-sec- Method (caramel without water)
Toast nuts. Cook sugar in a hot frying pan to caramel stage. Toss in warn nuts, turn heat off and transfer onto a silicone baking mat to cool.
Save one-third for the caramelized nuts; crush them for garnishing.

In a running food processor, blend remaining caramelized nuts with a pinch of salt until it turns into paste. Keep at room temp.

Hazelnut Ganache Montée (Quick mousse without eggs) / Make a day ahead
0.10 ounce (3g) gelatin sheet, soaked in cold water and drained
0.8 cup (200g) milk
3 ounces (90g) hazelnuts, toasted
4 ounces (120g) hazelnut praliné
4.5 ounces (130g) white chocolate, just melted
1.6 cup (400g) heavy cream; split in half.

Heat up milk and throw in hazelnuts; bring to boil and blend. Pass through a sieve and press down to extract as much hazelnut milk. Save solids for later use.
Bring back hazelnut milk to the saucepan, add half of the heavy cream and bring to boil. Pour hot liquid into the chocolate and blend. Add gelatin and blend. Add praline and the remaining but cool heavy cream. Blend well and refrigerate overnight.

Whip the chilled hazelnut ganache to medium-firm peaks and keep refrigerated.

Crunchy Milk Chocolate Glaze
8 ounces (250g) milk chocolate
8 ounces (250g) cocoa butter
2.5 ounces (75g) hazelnut crumbs or praliné grain.

Melt milk chocolate and cocoa butter to 113ºF (45ºC) over a bain marie (water bath) on low heat (water should not touch the bottom of the bowl). Wipe off bottom of the bowl and chill it for 5 to 10 min or until the sides of the bowl begins to set, give a good stir and check the temperature; it should be around 77/80ºF (25/26ºC). Quickly rewarm chocolate to 84/86ºF (29/30ºC) and add hazelnut crumbs.

Using the tip of a bamboo skewer, dip frozen hazelnut mousse in tempered chocolate. Let set and refrigerate.

Ferrero Shot Glasses Assembly
Make a 1/4 inch (6mm) thick layer of praliné into each glass. Pipe out some of hazelnut ganache monte (half way through) using the #825 star pastry tip and chill. Use leftovoer mousse and pipe out into swirls making sure than their diameter do not exceed the size of the cups and freeze until hardened and glaze. Garnish each glass with some crushed caramelized hazelnuts and top with the frozen glazed hazelnut swirl – keep refrigerated until dessert is thawed. Decorate with gold leaf if desired and serve – Enjoy!
