Hazelnut Chocolate Truffle Eggs [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Ingredients

For the Hazelnut Butter:

  • 1 cup hazelnuts
  • 3 tablespoons walnut oil

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup hazelnut butter
  • 2/3 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • A pinch of sea salt

For the Coating:

  • 1 cup vegan dark chocolate, chopped

Preparation

To Make the Hazelnut Butter:

  1. Place 3 cups hazelnuts into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth, using the tamper to press them down into the blades. If the mixture seems too dry, or like it is not blending smoothly, add 1 tablespoon at a time of walnut oil to make it smoother.

To Make the Filling:

  1. In a bowl, mix together the filling ingredients until smooth. You want it to be the consistency of dough so you can shape it into eggs. If it is too soft add a little more cacao powder. If it is too hard, add a little water or a little more maple syrup. Shape into 10 eggs, and place on a foil-lined tray. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to chill.

To Coat the Eggs:

  1. Once the filling has chilled, melt the dark chocolate in the top layer of a double boiler.
  2. Dip each egg into the melted dark chocolate, then place it back on the tray. Allow the chocolate to set, which will happen faster if you pop them in the freezer for about 10 minutes.

Notes

Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to a month.
