“This recipe is given in grams; it's from a BBC food show. The dough can feel a bit crumbly but it's no problem. These are really good and chocolaty. I like to roast my hazelnuts in the oven. You make them fast and you can eat more of them since there is no butter in them good for lactose intolerants!!”
