  • Set aside to let it cool completely.

For the 3rd mixture

  • Beat the icing sugar, cocoa powder and butter in a mixer.
  • Add the ganache, cognac and the digestive cookies (cut them in half, do not crush or crumble them.
  • Coarsely chop the hazelnuts in a blender.
  • Add them to the mixer’s bowl and gently stir with a spoon.
  • Lay out a sheet of parchment paper and spread the mixture along the edge of the sheet.
  • Start to roll into a log. Halfway through rolling, add a sheet of plastic wrap to help keep the roll the same size from beginning to end.
  • Continue to roll until the log is securely wrapped and tie the ends like a piece of candy.
  • Cover in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
