Monsieur said if we were gonna pimp any snack it had to be the Ferrero Rocher coz true snack daddys need to be spoilt. Did he have any pointers for us? You’re damn right he did… “It’s all about the wafer,” he said as he sipped on his gin and juice and kicked back on his chaise lounge.
750g jar of Nutella
Bag of hazelnuts
Box of waffle wafer baskets
Box of wafer oyster delights
Huge bar of galaxy (don’t scrimp when you pimp)
Ice cream wafers (surplus)
Bottle of Sambuca (optional)
Gold wrapping paper
Brown felt tip pen
Gold marker pen
Remove cream filling from Oyster Delights with finger and scoop (doggy dog) directly into mouth. Pick off the chocolate and coconut topping with fingernails (get your ho to do this with her new acrylics)
Gentle is the name of the game at this stage. These baskets ain’t taking no slam dunk. It’s all about the gentle lay-up. Softly, softly cut the bottom off two wafer baskets. After breaking half the packet we realised if you wet the bit you needed to remove, the knife will cut like a Ya Mamma joke.
Fill one half of an oyster shell with Nutella and then attach to the wafer basket with more Nutella.
Turn over and carefully fill the rest of the basket with Nutella. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for the other side.
When two sides are full place hazelnuts in the middle of one half, we reckoned ours is pimped to the value of eight so it got eight nuts in the middle.
Carefully sandwich the two sides together and add more Nutella (yes it was a 750g jar) to secure and fill in the ridges.
Place in the freezer to set whilst melting half the Galaxy in a pyrex dish in a pan of warm water, stirring continuously.
Stop…hammer time! Batter the hazelnuts with a lump hammer to create crushed nuts for the chocolate coating (it’s nut who you know its what you know, hey monsieur?!). Add to the melted chocolate.
When the mega Rocher is pretty hard, pour the chocolate and nut mixture over the top, smoothing out with the back of a spoon. Place back in the freezer until completely set, then turn over and repeat…voila !
A proper pimped snack needs to look dapper, we blinged ours out with a co-ordinating outfit to match his little brother…
Monsieur with this Pharell ‘a’ Rocher you’re really spoiling us!!
