●90 g of sugar (powder sugar)
●60 g of excellent quality dark chocolate (cut in pieces)
●70 g of sweet butter (if you can find lactose free)
Because I have a Thermomix, I can turn regular granulated sugar into powder sugar ; whole hazelnuts into ground ones and chocolate into a fine paste.
But I bet any good food processor will do the same.
So mix your 90 g of powder sugar with ground hazelnut.
Add the 60g of dark chocolate and grind away until it turns into a paste.
Add the butter and milk in the Thermomix and let it melt and blend 3 minutes, speed 2 on 50 degrees (I am French, so mind you :: I am talking Celsius). Then mix 5 seconds at speed 9.
Without the Thermomix ::
You can do this in a saucepan on low heat (remember to keep a close eye on your milk :) ) and then add your butter and milk mixture into your food processor .
Mix everything at maximum speed.
Transfer into a glass jar.
I do refrigerate because it contains milk. I simply get it out of the fridge ahead of time to make sure it is a nice spreadable consistency.
