Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole roasted hazelnuts
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar
  • 1½ cups plus 6 oz. melted and cooled sugar-free chocolate, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¾ tsp. sea salt

Directions

  • Line a large plate with parchment paper.
  • In a food processor, add nuts and coconut sugar. Pulse until a crumbly paste forms. Add the 1 ½ cups melted chocolate, oil, vanilla, and salt. Blend until smooth and creamy. Mixture should be thick but spreadable. Add an extra teaspoon of oil at a time if the mixture is too firm.
  • Pour the mixture into candy molds. When the molds are filled, place in the freezer to chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Remove truffles from the molds and dip in the remaining 6 oz. melted chocolate. Place on prepared plate. The frozen candies will harden the chocolate, allowing you to enjoy them immediately.
