Chef Way For his labor-intensive Candy Bars, Alain Ducasse makes hazelnut glaze and caramel pastry cream.

Easy Way Home cooks can use store-bought ice cream and Nutella for a simple version of Ducasse's Candy Bars.

  1. 1 cup hazelnuts (4 ounces)
  2. 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  3. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  4. 4 large egg whites
  5. Pinch of salt
  6. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  7. 4 ounces white chocolate, chopped
  8. 1 cup Nutella
  9. 6 sugar ice cream cones, crushed
  10. 1 pint caramel ice cream, softened
  1. Preheat the oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment. Spread the nuts in a pie plate and roast for 12 minutes, until the skins split. Transfer the nuts to a clean kitchen towel and let cool. Rub them together to remove the skins and transfer to a food processor. Add the confectioners' sugar and flour; process until the nuts are finely ground.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with the salt at high speed until soft peaks form. Beat in the granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the whites are stiff. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the ground nuts. Spread the batter on the parchment in a 9-by-12-inch rectangle. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden. Prop the oven door open and let the dacquoise sit for 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate in the microwave at high power in 1-minute intervals. Stir in the Nutella and crushed ice cream cones.
  4. Invert the dacquoise onto a surface and peel off the paper. Spread evenly with the Nutella filling. Cut the dacquoise in half to make two 9-by-6-inch rectangles. Freeze until the filling is set. Spread the ice cream over one half. Close the sandwich and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours. Slice and serve.
