Hazelnut Sauce
200g dark cooking chocolate, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup cream

1/4 cup Frangelico liqueur, if desired

1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Spread the hazelnuts over a baking tray. Cook for 10 minutes or until toasted. Remove from oven. Reduce heat to 100°C. Place hazelnuts on a clean tea towel and rub to remove skins. Coarsely chop.

2.Meanwhile, to make the sauce, place chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water).

Place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the sauce and set aside until required.
