Ingredients

  • 75 g hazelnuts
  • 60 g prunes
  • 60 g raisins
  • 60 g solid coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder cocoa powder can be used as an alternative
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 g dark chocolate at least 70% coco solids

Instructions

  • Using a blender (or I've even used my smoothie maker in the past) blitz the hazelnuts first until you have a fine breadcrumb consistency.
  • Add the prunes, raisins, coconut oil, vanilla and cacao powder and blitz once again until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined
  • Your mixture should be easy to handle and roll into 10 balls, if not simply pop in the fridge for 10-15 mins to harden a little making it easier to work with.
  • Once rolled into 10 balls, drop into your bowl of melted dark chocolate and coat fully, transfer onto a greased baking sheet and chill for at least 30 mins.

Notes

These keep for a week or more in the fridge and don't mind being out of the fridge either if you prefer a room temperature treat.
