Roasting the hazelnuts gives a deeper flavour and also helps to release the oils that make a butter.
While the hazelnuts are roasting, you can whizz up your sugar and set aside and melt the chocolate and set aside..
You will notice that the skins have become a much darker brown and the kitchen will smell of roasting hazelnuts.
To remove the skins, place the hazelnuts into a clean tea towel and give them a good firm rub. The skins should just fall off.
