Heat the cream in a small saucepan. Finely chop the chocolate and add to the cream, stirring until it is completely melted. Add the chopped nuts, stir and let it solidify in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. Prepare the chocolate covering by melting the dark chocolate in a bain marie. Make little balls with the solid chocolate mixture and put a whole nut in the centre of each ball. Skewer these little chocolate nut balls with a toothpick and dip them in the melted dark chocolate. Remove the toothpicks and let them harden on a wire rack.

For this recipe, as an alternative to dark chocolate, you can use milk or white chocolate, whatever you prefer. In addition, to cool more quickly you can refrigerate them for at least 3 hours.
The hazelnut is particularly rich in vitamin E, and also contains substances that prevent cardiovascular disease. The hazelnut tree, during the time of ancient Rome, was a gift thought to bring happiness; whilst in France, the tree was given to newlyweds to bring fertility.
