Ferrero Rocher Copycat [Vegan]





  • 1 cup unpitted dates
  • 1/2 cup oats or raw hazelnuts
  • 1 heaped tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • about 10 raw hazelnuts to place inside each ball
  • water if needed
  • a handful of raw hazelnuts to cover the balls


  1. Start by blending the handful of hazelnuts until you get them to crumbs. Put them on a plate and set aside
  2. Now place the 1/2 cup of oats or hazelnuts in a food processor and blend until you get flour. Then add the dates and the cacao powder and process again until the whole dough becomes a ball. If you don’t get it, then you will need to add some water to make it sticky. Add one spoon of water at a time.
  3. Once your dough is formed make the balls  with your hands. Don’t forget to put a hazelnut inside of every ball. Now roll them on the plate we have the hazelnut crumbs as the real Ferrero Rocher.
