These Ferrero Rocher Brownies are the ultimate treat to go with your afternoon cup of coffee!

Do you know how difficult it was just having a few bites of one of these Ferrero Rocher Brownies with Milk Chocolate Ganache?

I’ve been trying to be good this week – my jeans are feeling a little tight after the over-indulgence of the summer holidays. There was no way I could refrain completely from having a taste, but fortunately for me, the two large batches I made of these extremely naughty brownies were gone in less than 24 hours.These Ferrero Rocher Brownies are the ultimate treat to go with your afternoon cup of coffee!

One batch went to school for the Macmillan coffee morning, the other batch was shared out between our builders at home and my daughter’s footy team.


Each one of these fudgy brownies contains one whole Ferrero Rocher!

I almost stopped there, but I couldn’t help myself in topping the brownies with a layer of milk chocolate ganache and some chopped hazelnuts.

These Ferrero Rocher Brownies are the ultimate treat to go with your afternoon cup of coffee!

Very indulgent! It’s best to save a slice until after your dinner!

  • Preheat the oven to 180c/350f and line a deep 20cmx30cm baking tin with baking parchment. Leave a little of the parchment overhanging the tray to make it easier to get the brownie out later.
  • Melt the dark chocolate and butter together in the microwave in 30 second bursts, giving it a stir each 30 seconds (or you can melt in a bowl over a pan of simmering water - make sure the bowl isn't touching the water though). Stir and leave to cool slightly.
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl using an electric whisk until thick and creamy.
  • Slowly whisk again, and pour the melted chocolate and butter in. Pour it at the side of the bowl in a thin stream, whisking all the time, so that the eggs don't scramble with the warm chocolate.
  • When the chocolate is thoroughly mixed in, sieve the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder over the mixture, and then add the ground almonds. Fold into the mix gently, in a figure of eight. This will help to keep the air in.
  • Pour the mixture into your baking tray, and use a palette knife to ensure it goes all the way to the edges.
  • Arrange the Ferrero Rochers on top of the brownie mix evenly - so that you'll remember where to slice the brownies once they're cooked. Push the Ferrero Rochers into the mixture slightly and place the tray in the oven.
  • Cook for 25 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the tray. Lift the brownie out of the tray using the baking parchment and place on a chopping board.
  • Whilst the brownies are cooling, make the ganache. Heat the cream in a saucepan until it's just about to come to the boil, then turn the heat off. Add the chocolate, stir once, and place a lid on the pan. Leave for 10 minutes for the chocolate to melt. After 10 minutes, stir the ganache until it comes together in a smooth mixture. Leave to cool for a further 10-20 minutes, so it thickens to a consistency where it's pour-able, but thick enough not to run straight off the brownies.
  • Pour the ganache all over the top of the brownie, and spread to the edges if required using a spatula. Sprinkle the chopped nuts on top.
  • The ganache won't set completely - it's supposed to be thick and sticky. It will firm up a little if you leave it for an hour or so.
  • Use a sharp knife to slice the brownie into 12 portions - try to ensure there's a full Ferrero Rocher in each portion.


Leftover brownies can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days.

    Made these this morning and they are fabulous! I used a tray bake tin a little bit wider than the one in the method so I was worried they would be a little bit on the thin side, but they were fine! So easy to make, they taste even better once they have been in the fridge for a little while! I kept the cream on a low heat while the chocolate melted as I struggled to get it to melt off the heat while the lid was on, it still made a lovely shiny ganache!
