Hazelnut Ganache Cups are a rich and creamy bite-sized confection made of finely ground toasted hazelnuts added to a Chocolate Ganache. Once made the mixture is piped into small paper cups. The finishing touch is to place a whole hazelnut in the center of each Ganache Cup. They are perfect for gift giving or serving as an after dinner treat.
The taste and quality of the Ganache is primarily dependent on the quality of chocolate you start with. So use a chocolate that you enjoy eating out of hand. You can use either a bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate for making your Ganache. The hazelnut flavor of these Hazelnut Ganache Cups comes from finely chopped toasted hazelnuts, along with some Hazelnut Praline Paste and Frangelico, a hazelnut flavored liqueur.
Hazelnut Praline Paste is a mixture of hazelnuts and a sugar syrup. (I used the brand Love n Bake #ad). Another excellent choice is Callebaut. However, Hazelnut Praline Paste can be hard to find so you can simply leave it out or replace the hazelnut praline paste with an equal amount of Nutella. If you like you can also omit the Frangelico.
