Healthy Homemade Ferrero Rocher

Servings: 16 Truffles
Prep Time: 1 hr
Total Time: 1 hr 45 mins
These Healthy Homemade Ferrero Rochers are super delicious and easy to make, you'd never know they're low sugar, high protein, gluten free, dairy free, vegan!

Ingredients

Truffles:

Coating:

  • ½ cup Chopped Hazelnuts
  • 6 oz 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate (melted)

Instructions

  • Slice the avocados, remove the pits, and put the flesh into a medium-sized bowl (the flesh of my avocado weighed 292g). Add the vanilla paste and stevia extract. Blend with a hand blender (I used my KitchenAid Hand Blender with Star Blade) until smooth. This measured 1⅓ cups after pureeing.
  • Add the protein powder, cocoa powder and salt and blend again (the mixture should be thick like frosting).
  • Line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper. Use a 1½” cookie scoop to scoop the fudge cream onto the prepared pan. Press the hazelnuts into the center of the scoops and refrigerate uncovered for 1 hour.
  • In a bowl, stir the chopped hazelnuts into the melted chocolate.
  • Roll the chocolate "scoops" into balls, then dip them into the melted chocolate.  Place the balls back on the pan.  Refrigerate until firm.  Wrap the balls in squares of tin foil and refrigerate to store. Keeps for 3 days.

Recipe Notes
