Just another amazing recipe from our health program Because life is way to short to not enjoy treats! Recipe below Ps these are totally addictive.
1 cup roasted Hazelnuts
1⁄2 cup soaked dates
1-2 tbsp cocoa or raw cacao powder
Small pinch salt
Splash maple syrup, optional if you prefer a sweeter paste
Approx 15-18 whole roasted hazelnuts for crunchy centre
1 cup crushed roasted hazelnuts for rolling
200g melted 70-85% chocolate for rolling
Remove skins by rubbing between a tea towel and discard. Pulse one cup of nuts in a food processor to a crushed consistency and set aside for rolling. Also set aside 18 whole nuts for the centre. Process remaining nuts until they form a paste- if you can do this while warm from the oven this helps, but it doesn’t have to be perfect. Add dates and cocoa and keep processing until as smooth as possible. Taste and adjust chocolate flavour if
needed. Roll paste into balls, flatten and add hazelnut to the centre, and shape paste around it into a ball again. Once all have been rolled dip one at a time into melted chocolate, remove with a fork then roll straight away in crushed hazelnuts. Place on a tray lined with baking paper. Set in the freezer.
