Homemade hazelnut chocolate balls are made with only six real-food ingredients — hazelnuts, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, sea salt and diary-free mini chocolate chips. They taste like Ferrero Rocher candies but are healthy, gluten-free as well as vegan and paleo friendly.

Ohh man. I don’t know if you’re ready for these chocolate hazelnut bites. They’re my take on homemade Ferrero Rocher (aka one of my favorite candies growing up).
Do you have a sweet tooth? I feel like I do, but in phases. Sometimes I need to finish off every meal with something sweet, and other times I can go a couple of weeks without even craving dessert. Whenever I realize I’m a little too hooked on sweets, I try to make the conscious choice to get back to naturally sweetened foods (instead of ultra-processed treats).

Hazelnut Chocolate Balls

  • Author: Brittany Mullins
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 8


Hazelnut chocolate balls are made with only six real food ingredients. They taste like Ferrero Rocher candies but are healthy, gluten-free and vegan. 


  • 1 cup + 12 individual hazelnuts, raw or toasted
  • 2 Tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 Tablespoon diary-free mini chocolate chips or dark chocolate chunks (optional)


  1. Add 1 cup hazelnuts into a food processor (affiliate link) fitted with the S-blade and process until hazelnuts are chopped into small pieces. Add cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla, sea salt and chocolate (if using) into the processor and pulse a few more times, until the ingredients start to stick together. If the mixture seems too dry, add a little water, 1 teaspoon at a time until the mixture holds together well enough to be formed into balls. Be sure not to add too much water.
  2. Roll mixture into bite-size balls and insert one hazelnut into the center of each, forming the ball around it. This step is totally optional, but makes the bites more like the traditional Ferrero Rocher.
  3. Chop remaining 4 hazelnuts into tiny pieces. Roll each ball in the mixture to coat the outside. Enjoy energy bites right away and/or store remaining bites in the fridge for later.
