  • 1 box of 16 Ferrero Rocher chocolates
  • 250g pack salted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 250g golden caster sugar
  • 225g light muscovado sugar
  • 100g cocoa powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 85g ready-chopped hazelnuts
  • 4 tbsp Frangelico or Fratello hazelnut liqueur


  1. Unwrap chocolates, place on tray and put in freezer. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Lightly grease and line base and sides of 21-22cm square tin with baking paper.
  2. Put butter, sugars and cocoa into large saucepan and gently melt together, stirring regularly so mixture doesn’t catch. Once sugar granules have just about disappeared, take off heat, tip into bowl. Leave to cool for 5 mins.
  3. Use whisk or wooden spoon to beat eggs, one by one, into mixture. When they’re completely incorporated and mixture is smooth and shiny, stir in flour, hazelnuts and liqueur. Tip mixture into prepared tin and bake for 35 mins.
  4. Remove tin from oven and use cutlery knife to mark top of the brownies into 16 squares without cutting completely through. Use teaspoon to dent in centre of each portion and add a frozen Ferrero Rocher chocolate into each dip. Return to oven for 3 mins, then remove and leave to cool completely. Once cool, cut into 16 squares and serve.
