As you know from my previous post, I had made easy Homemade Kit Kat bars which my family and friends loved (I had to distribute it to avoid over gorging on them!!) and had some melted chocolate leftover in the bowl. Today, I decided to use them in making nutella filled chocolates!!

I am a whole and whole chocolate lover, so you will almost always find a Nutella jar in my pantry.  When my children were small, I used to make a variety of chocolates for them like almond chocolates, mint flavored chocolates and mocha filled chocolates. I will share how to make these very soon.

Today, I will share how to make my Nutella filled chocolate with you. You will need your favorite chocolate (I am using Morde milk chocolate), a jar of Nutella and some plastic or silicon chocolate molds. Just melt chocolate, coat the cavities, fill with Nutella and pour chocolate again and chill; as easy as that!!!

With festivities just around the corner, these will make perfect gifts to give to your loved ones!!

Step-by-step method:

  • Chop the chocolates into small pieces and place in a bowl.

  • Now you need to melt this chocolate over a double boiler (my method) or microwave.
  • As mentioned in my post of homemade Kit Kat bars, you need to place the bowl of chocolates over a bowl of simmering hot water and keep stirring the chocolate till it is almost completely melted.

  • Make sure that steam or water drops do not get into the chocolate or it will seize and harden and will become useless and you will have to start all over again with fresh chocolate.
  • Then remove from heat and keep stirring till completely melted.

Filling the mold:

  • With a small spoon (or if you prefer in a piping bag), pour small quantities of melted chocolate into each mold to fill it.
  • Either you can fill a little and tilt the mold to coat the sides of the cavities or fill completely (which is easier).

  • Once the mold is coated fully, tilt the whole chocolate mold over the bowl of chocolate to remove excess chocolate and leave only a coating in the mold.

  • Remove any excess chocolate outside the mold with knife or tissue paper.

  • Place this mold into the refrigerator for at least 10 to 15 minutes for the chocolate to set.

Filling the Nutella:

  • After the chocolate has set, remove from the refrigerator. Spoon or pipe small quantities of Nutella into each cavity or chocolate mold. Take care not to fill till the top as you need some space to fill the base of the chocolate to encase the Nutella.

  • Now tap the chocolate mold on the counter gently to level the Nutella in the mold and to remove all air bubbles.
  • Melt the chocolate in the bowl again and spoon over the Nutella filled chocolate, to cover completely, tap the plastic chocolate mold again on the counter a few times.

  • Remove excess chocolate from the top of the mold with a knife or tissue and place the mold again in the refrigerator to set.
  • After 15 minutes or so, remove the mold from the fridge.  If the chocolate has set completely, you will notice that the chocolate does not look wet at the bottom of the mold. Turn the mold over on a plate.  Bang it a little and if the chocolate is completely set, they will just fall out of the mold on to the plate.
