  6. In a small bowl, mix the chocolate hazelnut spread, hazelnut meal and chopped hazelnuts until well combined.

  7. Freeze until the mixture is stiff enough to be moulded and rolled into balls.

  8. Working quickly while the mixture is stiff, mold one slightly heaped teaspoon of choc hazelnut mixture around 1 whole hazelnut, then roll in the chopped ice-cream wafers.

  9. Freeze again until the balls are firm.

  10. Melt the milk chocolate in a double boiler (a metal dish over a saucepan of simmering water), chocolate melting appliance or microwave and coat each ball draining off excess chocolate.
