Tips

  1. If you heat the hazelnut cream in the microwave, be careful that it does not burn (maximum 10 seconds).
  2. Fill the hearts quickly, because the cream tends to solidify and does not go down.

Storage

  1. The hearts can be stored in an airtight container for three to four days at room temperature.
