Ingredients

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped skinned hazelnut
  • 1 bottle vodka
Chocolate Syrup:
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder sifted

Method

Chocolate Syrup: In small saucepan, whisk sugar with cocoa powder; whisk in 1/4 cup water. Bring to boil; cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Let cool completely.

Meanwhile, spread hazelnuts on rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 350 F (180 C) oven, turning once, just until golden, about 7 minutes. Let cool completely.

Add hazelnuts and chocolate syrup to sterilized 4-cup (1 L) jar with tightfitting lid. Top with vodka; seal tightly and shake to combine. Refrigerate for 3 weeks, shaking jar periodically.

Strain through 2 layers of cheesecloth, then through paper coffee filter–lined strainer, into bowl. Using funnel, pour mixture into decorative 3-cup (750 mL) bottle. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 months. Shake well before serving.
