The most delicious and indulgent energy ball I’ve yet made! This recipe was inspired by my for favourite chocolate, Ferrero Rocher but in a healthier version!
Made with hazelnut, dates and cacao this bliss ball also have a gooey soft filling of runny almond butter making them such a delight!
And to make them extra special and delicious I covered mine with dark chocolate and more toasted hazelnuts! tot optional but totally delicious!

Roll into 14 balls. Press one finger into the middle of a ball to create a hole. Add about 1 tsp of almond butter and then press the sides of the ball to scale the hole. Repeat with all balls.
Melt chocolate in microwave in 15 sec intervals until completely melted. Insert a tooth pick to a the middle of the ball and dip it in the melted chocolate. Roll in crushed walnuts & repeat with each moon ball.
