Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 100 gms Dark Chocolate- I use 85% couverture
- 75 gms almond meal/almond flour
- 50 gms desiccated coconut
- 50 gms finely chopped hazelnuts
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder/cacao powder or dutch cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon stevia blend /monk fruit blend
- A pinch of salt
- 15-20 whole hazelnuts for centres
Melt the dark chocolate with coconut oil (or heavy cream option)
Stir in the vanilla extract
Add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mix and stir until well combined.
Shape small teaspoonful amounts into balls and flatten slightly with your hand. Place a hazelnut inside and wrap the ball around the hazelnut, creating a smooth finish. If the mix is sticking, wet your hands slightly.
Roll any balls you wish to roll in the chopped nuts now, before refrigerating. Place any balls you will be decorating with chocolate into the fridge to firm up before decorating.
Decorate the cold balls with chocolate by drizzling with the additional 20 gms/.7 ozs melted dark chocolate. Top with chopped hazelnuts and store in the fridge.
To dip balls completely in chocolate, melt the additional 50 gms/1.75 oz of dark chocolate in a small bowl and allow to cool slightly so it thickens a little. Remove the balls from the fridge so they are cold and firm, and place a toothpick into each ball. Dip each ball into the chocolate and allow excess to drip off before inserting the toothpick into a piece of foam so the chocolate can set. Remove toothpick when chocolate has set.
Switch the coconut oil for butter or fresh heavy cream. Note that if you use fresh heavy cream in these, they will only last about 5 days and must be kept in the fridge.
Decorate these in a variety of ways. Roll some in hazelnut, coat some in chocolate and drizzle some in chocolate. You may need additional chocolate/topping ingredients to coat all of the balls completely in chocolate.
