  • 40 g whole hazelnuts 1.4 oz/ ¼ cups
  • 50 g unsweetened cornflakes 1.8 oz/ 2 cups
  • 60 g hard caramel candy 2.1 oz, Note 2
  • 100 g g/ 3.5 oz milk chocolate 3.5 oz, Note 3
  • 100 g dark chocolate about 70% cocoa 3.5 oz, Note 4
  • pinch of fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil


  • Line a casserole dish of about 20x20 cm/ 8x8 inch with plastic foil.
  • Roast the hazelnuts in a pan without any fat, for a few minutes or until fragrant. Stand by and shake the pan very often to avoid them burning. Immediately remove the nuts from the pan and let cool.
  • Rub the nuts between your palms to remove some of their brown skin. You don't have to get it all away, just as much as you manage.

Without a food processor:

  • Chop the roasted hazelnuts roughly using a chef's knife. Place in a bowl.
  • Crush the cornflakes roughly with your hands. Add to the hazelnuts.
  • Crush the hard candy using a meat mallet or a heavy, sturdy pan. Set aside separately from the rest.
  • Melt the chocolate au bain-marie. Once it is fully melted, add the salt and the oil. Pour over the hazelnuts and the cornflakes. Mix very well.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, sprinkle with the crushed candy.

Thermomix or another good food processor that can manage crushing the hard candy:

  • Chop the roasted hazelnuts for 6 seconds on level 6. Transfer to a bowl. Roughly crush the cornflakes for 3 seconds on level 5. Add to the bowl with the hazelnuts.
  • Crush the hard candy for 3 seconds on level 5. Transfer to a separate bowl.
  • Chop the chocolate pieces for 6 seconds on level 5. Add the salt and the oil and melt for 5 minutes/50 degrees Celsius/ level 2. Add to the bowl with the hazelnuts and cornflakes and mix well.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle evenly with the crushed caramel candy.


  • Let set: Place the dish in the fridge for a couple of hours until the chocolate is set again. Chop into smallish squares. I prefer to eat it cold, straight from the refrigerator. It keeps well in the fridge.
