Delicious hazelnut chocolate balls


Servings: - + For the chocolate coating:


Step 1

Coarsely chop the hazelnuts in a food processor and remove approx. 30 g (18-20 pieces) and set aside for the coating. Process the rest of the hazelnuts into a coarse flour.

Step 2

Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, nut butter, coconut oil, vanilla and spices and process in the food processor to a homogeneous paste. The mixture should hold together.

Step 3

Shape into 18-20 balls with your hands and fill each ball with a whole hazelnut.

Step 4

Then roll the nuts in a mixture of chocolate sprinkles/cocoa nibs and chopped hazelnuts.

Step 5

Place the balls in the fridge to harden.

Step 6

In the meantime, melt the cocoa butter in a bain-marie. Mix in the cocoa powder and work into a homogeneous mixture. If necessary, mix with a small whisk so that no lumps form. Add the vanilla and salt and mix well. You now have dark chocolate with a cocoa content of approx. 100%.

Step 7

Add the syrup to taste. 1 tsp = approx. 85% cocoa content, 1.5 tsp = approx. 75% cocoa content, 2 tsp = approx. 60% cocoa content.

Step 8

Dip the balls in the liquid chocolate and put them back in the fridge. Leave to harden for at least 1-2 hours, preferably overnight.

Step 9

Keep in the fridge until ready to eat and enjoy at room temperature to bring out the flavors.
