Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling

Kinder Bueno is a delightful chocolate and hazelnut snack which is marketed at kids ("kinder" is German for children), but is enjoyed by adults in equal measure. Part of this reason is its light chocolate wafer shell, not too cloying for an adult palate. Once you break into that shell, you are rewarded with a creamy hazelnut filling which is sweet, but still fluffy enough to not make you wince at the calories. This oneHOWTO copycat version of homemade Kinder Bueno filling is easy to make (much easier than scooping out individual Kinder Bueno pieces with a tiny spoon) and can be used in a range of different desserts.

We'll start our homemade Kinder Bueno filling by arranging the ingredients. You could make an alternate version with milk or dark chocolate, but it won't be like the kinder original. Besides, we already have lots of other chocolate recipes to choose from like some delicious chunky Australian rocky road.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 1

You will need a blender or food processor for this recipe, trying to finely chop or mash by hand will be very difficult. Put the hazelnuts and the sugar in the processor and process for a few minutes until you get a creamy paste, similar to how you would make a homemade peanut butter.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 2

Continue our homemade Kinder Bueno filling by adding the cornstarch, vanilla essence and salt. Slowly process on a low setting and add the oil little by little.

Once you have an even consistency, add the white chocolate and pour the milk in the same way you added the oil.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 4

Keep processing until you get a thick creamy paste, just as you would have with the filling for a real Kinder Bueno.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 5

Once your homemade Kinder Bueno filling is ready, you can use it to fill pretty much whatever you like. You can use it as a spread for a sponge cake sandwich or even stuff it into chocolates like these delicious chocolate bonbons.

Can you use Hazelnut essence instead of hazelnuts?

Hi Victoria,

Not with this recipe. The hazelnuts don't just provide flavor, but also texture and a lot of the weight. If you removed them, you would have a white chocolate sauce with hazelnut flavoring, but it wouldn't be the same.
This is great, I didn't have hazenuts on hand but wanted to make it so I used almond butter. Added a bit less oil than recipe calls since the almond butter has plenty and wow ! So tasty ! Thank you

Hi Ang

So glad we could help. Let us know what you used it for if you get a second!
Hi, is there any alternative to the oil in the recipe?
OneHowTo Editor
You could use a different type of oil, although it may work with melted butter. Whatever you do, you will need to find some type of fat to make it work.
You haven't mentioned adding water in the recipe as you did in the comments. Can you please explain. Thanks.
OneHowTo Editor
The milk should provide enough liquid to make the cornstarch work. Only use water if you need to thin it out. If you follow the recipe, you shouldn't need water.
how long will the bueno sauce last?
Hi, I'm looking to use this as a filling for a 3 or 4 layer cake. Will I have to increase the measurements or will this amount be sufficient? Thank you

Hi Debbie, we would say double them just to be on the safe side. Better to have too much than not enough.

Hello it seems very good and very simple recipe. I really want to try it but I'm in Malta and we use the metric system i.e grams, millilitres etc. Would it be possible to post the measurments in metric aswell please? Thankyou for this recipe, the result seems amazing.
Hi, is the cornstarch a powder or liquid please?
OneHowTo Editor
Starts as a powder, you make it into a liquid with water!
