Homemade, Raw, Vegan Ferrero Rocher. This one is by far my favorite recipe. These homemade ones are super simple, sweet, crispy, crunchy and delicious healthy treat.
Anything that include chocolate has to be good, right?! Just imagine it – a soft shell of dark chocolate and crunchy hazelnuts, the perfectly gorgeous flavor combination of figs and rich chocolate hazelnut butter, all in one bite! It turns out they’re quite a bit more than good. It’s pure magic. These are the best cure for your chocolate cravings!
These come together in no time and require nothing more than a little chopping, melting and coating. A little messy, but it’s well worth the effort. These are the healthiest, most delicious and seriously addictive chocolate hazelnut truffles you’ll ever eat.
The time has come for me to share with you all my own healthier version of Ferrero Rocher
- 1 cup hazelnuts, soaked then dehydrated
- 2 heaping tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 tablespoon cacao powder
- 8 dried figs, stems removed
- ⅓ cup finely chopped hazelnuts
- Chocolate coating
- 1 cup chocolate chips, vegan
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- In a food processor, add 1 cup hazelnuts and coconut oil and blend until smooth (don't over-process), then add 2 tablespoon cacao powder and pulse to combine. Should take four to five minutes. This depends on the strength of your food processor. Process until the nuts will release enough oils and sticks together when pressed. Occasionally stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor to get the right consistency.
- Divide the dough into eight equal portions, and then gently roll each portion into rounds. Using a circular motion with the palm of your hand.
- With sharp knife, cut small slit in top of each fig. Stuff a whole hazelnut into the middle of the figs.
- Holding a circle of dough in your palm, place the fig in the center and then form the hazelnut mixture around the fig to completely enclose it.
- Roll each ball in a bowl of chopped hazelnuts, pressing on the hazelnut pieces as you go. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to harden.
- When the truffles are firm, dip each ball in melted chocolate one by one. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!
