Makes: 40 candies
Prep time: 45 minutes
Set time for: 1 1/2 hours

  • 3/4 cup Hazelnuts, toasted, skin removed, divided
  • 1/4 cup Toffee candy bits
  • 1 1/4 cups (10oz) Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream

Process 1/4 cup hazelnuts and toffee in food processor or blender until finely ground; set aside.

Microwave chocolate chips and cream in small microwave-safe bowl on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until most of chocolate is melted. Do not overheat; lumps will melt when stirred. Stir in hazelnut mixture, vanilla and salt until blended. Cover and set aside until cool, about 1 1/2 hours.

Flatten caramel piece and wrap around one whole hazelnut forming a round ball; repeat. Dice remaining 1/2 cup hazelnuts; set aside.
