I absolutely adore Ferrero Rocher’s… Ever since I was a child, I always regarded these little chocs as being ‘fancy food’. Maybe its the gold foil, or maybe its because we were allowed them at special occasions or gave them as part of a gift…I don’t know.
The little packs also only contain 3 chocolates, so you automatically assume they must be decadent right? When in actual fact a pack of 10 would be better appretiated, hint hint…Anyway, with this in mind, I wanted to make my own healthy version of these beautiful treats…I know the normal Ferrero calls for hazelnuts, but they aren’t all that cost effective…So the recipe I plan to share with all of you is not only healthier, but it is a hell of a lot cheaper 🙂
I hope you enjoy it!!!
- 1 can blackbeans, drained and rinsed
- 2 TBS organic coconut oil
- 2 TBS sugar and salt free peanut butter
- 3 TBS honey
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 1 scoop chocolte whey protein (If you would prefer to leave this out, add 2 TBS of extra cocoa
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- Sugar free dark chocolate (for coating)- I used 1/2 a slab
- Sprinkle nuts, for coating- I used 3/4 of a cup
Add the black beans to a food processor and blend until relatively smooth (although this wont be 100 % possible until more wet ingredients have been added)
Add the remainder of the ingredients (except the chocolate and the sprinkle nuts) to the food processor and blend until a ball starts to form.
Wrap the dough in some clingfilm and leave in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or 15 minutes in the freezer.
Melt the chocolate over the stove (You can add an extra TBS of coconut oil to the chocolate to 'thin' it out)
After the dough has chilled, roll into ball, roll the ball in the melted chocolate and then cover with the sprinkle nuts (This can get very messy)
Place the coated balls on a plate and allow the balls to set in the fridge.
If you want your Ferrero Rocher to REALLY impress people, roll the dough around a small dollop of frozen peanut butter (I melt a sachet of peanut butter and then snip the side and drop the melted peanut butter on a baking tray before placing the tray into the freezer. This really blows people away!!!
