Day 229: Ferrero Rocher Cake

Have you ever had a Ferrero Rocher? It's my favorite! It's a stuffed hazelnut covered ball filled with a creamy nutella center.

I live for nutella! So naturally I love Ferrero Rocher's. I decided to make a cake out of these Ferrero Rocher's today, and I'm loving it.

It's filled with a creamy nutella frosting and crushed up Ferrero Rocher pieces inside! The cake is a classic, moist chocolate cake.

If you want, you can replace 3/4 cup of the all-purpose flour, with hazelnut flour. I was going to, but my hazelnut flour didn't come in time. All-purpose flour ended up working, but if you want to connect the frosting and cake a little better, I recommend the hazelnut flour! If you don't have hazelnut flour on hand, that's totally fine as well!

You will absolutely love this cake. It's moist and creamy with a yummy crunch. Plus it's piled high with 6 cake layers! If slicing the cake layers in half seems daunting, you can just keep 3 large layers, and it will still work amazingly!

Most people eat Ferrero Rocher's in the the winter, but I decided to make this cake anyway! I know I should be focusing more on Halloween desserts, but today just felt like a celebration day! 😉
