 ½ cup sugar
 ½ cup bitter cacao powder

Adding this to the cookie/cocoa mixture.

In a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate and allow it to cool.

6

Add the rest of the ingredients: the softened butter, the remaining whole hazelnuts, and the melted chocolate.

Add the 3 tablespoons of water, mix everything together well with your hands, taking care that the butter blends well with the other ingredients.

Roll it up well in the foil then place it in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours (the longer it stays in the fridge the better!)
