Ferrero Rocher is a premium, spherical chocolate sweet produced by the Italian chocolatier Ferrero SpA. Other notable Ferrero SpA brands include Nutella, Kinder Chocolate and Tic Tac.

The Ferrero Rocher was introduced in 1982 in Europe. Shortly after release production was halted due to a problem with label printing. Michele Ferrero, the credited inventor, named the chocolate after a grotto in the Roman Catholic shrine of Lourdes. Rocher comes from the French and means rock or boulder the main grotto at the Lourdes shrine is in the rock of Massabielle.

The chocolate consists of a whole roasted hazelnut encased in a thin wafer shell filled with hazelnut chocolate and covered in milk chocolate and chopped hazelnuts. Its ingredients are milk chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, skim milk powder, butteroil, lecithin as emulsifier (soy), vanillin (artificial flavour), hazelnuts, palm oil, wheat flour, whey (milk), low-fat cocoa powder, sodium bicarbonate (leavening agent), and salt.
