Ferrero Rocher Knock Offs


5 cups of hazelnuts plus a bit extra for the outer
80g milk chocolate – use whichever you prefer
1tsp cocoa or cacao
2-3 tbsp coconut oil
2-3 tbsp maple syrup

50g dark chocolate
Left over whole hazelnuts


  • Lay hazelnuts on baking paper & roast on 175C fan forced for approx. 10 minutes, just until the skin looks like it is starting to crack off. If you have pre roasted hazelnuts, still roast for a few minutes to get the oils to release.
  • Take out of oven & after cooling for a few minutes, place in a tea towel & get most of the skin off.
  • Add 1 cup of the hazelnuts in a processor or NutriBullet and blend until you have a butter consistency.
  • Melt milk chocolate in microwave and stir through cocoa/cacao, coconut oil & maple syrup (or choice of sweetener) with the hazelnut butter/paste.
  • Place in freezer for 5min to firm up slightly to make it easy to roll.
  • Take out of freezer and roll into 2 tsp balls, place one whole hazelnut in the center and roll smooth.
  • Place in freezer for a further 10 min while you melt dark chocolate.
  • With any left of hazelnuts, blitz up but not too fine to coat the outer of the balls. Dip balls into melted dark chocolate and then sprinkle the crushed hazelnuts.
  • Freeze for a couple of hours and then leave in the fridge for nibbling anytime.
