chocolate hazelnut ferrero rocher cake

Ferrero Rocher Cake

Do you enjoy the chocolate and hazelnut flavors of the popular Ferrero Rocher candy? You’ll love those same flavors in this Ferrero Rocher cake made with hazelnuts, Frangelico, chocolate and Nutella! For this cake, I add pieces of waffle cookies for extra crunch and frost the outside of the cake with a Nutella buttercream! It’s a chocolate-lover’s dream!

This cake is uber rich, like biting into a decadent truffle. The chocolate cake layers are delicate, yet rich almost like a brownie and very chocolatey. This richness is balanced with the fluffy chocolate buttercream and the bittersweet flavor of Frangelico. I get lots of questions about substituting the liqueur in this recipe. If you want to make an alcohol-free version of this cake, simply replace the Frangelico with hazelnut syrup. You can find this syrup in the coffee aisle of your local grocery store. You can also try adding a teaspoon of hazelnut extract to the buttercream and the cake batter to add extra nutty flavor. Either way, this recipe will taste amazing!
