Recipe by Silvia
"Makes about 35 wonderful nougat balls. This recipe is from my German grandmother - yum. This is the 'G' version; add rum to make it for adults. Use high-quality ingredients - the best chocolate and cocoa you can find. They're worth it!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

semi-sweet chocolate chunks
1 1/2 tablespoons
unsweetened cocoa powder
strong brewed coffee, or as needed
The ground hazelnuts smelled so divine when I opened the package of Hazelnut Flour from Italy. I substituted granulated sugar for confectioners' and added 1 T of corn starch, knowing that it may be gritty in texture. But I could not get the balls to form, nor did I know how to dip the messy balls into the chocolate, my hands were sticky. It was all so messy, I put it aside. I will use the mixture to make a groundnut sponge cake, Nussschnitten. Substituting granulated sugar may have caused the problem in forming balls.
Yes, this recipe was messy, but the results were worth the mess. I followed the recipe exactly as stated, except that my coffee was room temperature. I used a breakfast blend and it gives it just a hint of coffee. The hardest part of this recipe was coating the nougat- does anyone have any suggestions? I used toothpicks to dip, but they stuck to the "balls" when I tried to drop them on the cookie sheet. Would give this five stars if the directions addressed the dipping part.
Use german chocolate for dipping. This is a fantastic recipie, just dip the balls into the chocolate by HAND and let the chocolate drain off before putting them on parchment paper. Very little mess! GREAT RECIPIE!
