Preparation

  1. In a food processor put macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, coconut rapé, cocoa butter, stevia, vanilla and salt. Mince everything until a smooth and homogeneous cream is obtained.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and place in the freezer for at least 45 minutes. After this time, the chocolate dough comes out of the freezer and, with your hands, forms 16 balls by inserting a hazelnut inside each of these.
  3. Once the balls are formed, place them on a plate and put them back in the freezer for another 45 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the chocolate: melt the cocoa butter and the coconut butter.
  4. Add the sifted cocoa, the stevia and the vanilla and mix until there are no lumps. Add the chopped hazelnuts and mix until it is well distributed.
  5. Dip each of the balls into the hazelnut chocolate, drain the excess chocolate and place it in a pan covered with parchment paper.
  6. Cover it a second time with the chocolate sauce. Store in the freezer for another 10 minutes.
  7. Serve or keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Notes

If you do not like the aftertaste of stevia (although in this case it is well hidden from dried fruit and vanilla) use of mesquite (3 tablespoons in the filling and 2 more in chocolate) or maple syrup (2 tablespoons in the filling and 2 tablespoons in chocolate).
