Chocolate hazelnut spread, maraschino cherries & a sweet creamy filling
If you want to get ahead, you can make the sponge a day or two in advance and keep it in an air-tight container until you’re ready to decorate. Once assembled, it will keep fresh for up to 2 days – best stored in the fridge.
If you’re planning to give this as a gift, please advise the lucky recipient to keep it in an air-tight container in the fridge until needed for maximum freshness.
You can use the hazelnut chocolate spread to make truffles. Simply scoop a spoonful of the cold hazelnut mixture and roll it in desiccated coconut, cocoa powder, crushed nuts, your favourite blitzed chocolate bar – or anything else you fancy. Decorate with melted white chocolate drizzled on with a cocktail stick, if you like. Then package up in pretty tins and give to lucky friends or family. Or, for an even easier idea, simply gift the jar to someone you love.
