I'm sure you've all had Ferrero Rocher at one point in your life or another. They were my favorite "fancy" chocolates growing up, and those gold foil-wrapped orbs still hold a very fond place in my chocolate repertoire.

Pictured above is La Maison du Chocolat's adaptation of the Ferrero Rocher. It may only be properly described as a truly gigantic Rocher. $6.50 a pop, they come milk or dark chocolate. A giant ball of silky ganache is rolled in toasted, chopped almonds and hazelnuts and then dipped once again for a crackling crisp chocolate shell. The only thing this rocher is missing is a hazelnut center encased by a chocolate wafer round—but you can't have everything all the time, now can you?
