Ice cream candies that can support your ketogenic diet. These Ferrero Rocher ice cream truffels are full of fat, and we know now that fat is great for mind and body.
IF you don’t believe me, do your own research. I won’t go without fat ever again.
Ferrero Rocher style cream filling/ covering:
Makes: approx. 180grm – 13 balls at 13grams
Prep time: 20min
Cool/ set time: 1-2 hours in the freezer
- 30 grams Hazelnuts ground (roasted if possible)
- 130 grams Longley Farm Jersey extra rich cream
- 20 grams Cocoa, Dry Powder, Unsweetened
- ground nuts to roll the candies in for clean hands during eating.
- 2-3 knife-tips Stevia-sweet 90% powder dissolved in 1 table spoons hot water
Note: getting the sweetness to the desired level is a matter of trial and error, the best thing is to start with a smaller amount of whatever Stevia you have on hand, it can be ready-use, liquid or tabs (need to be dissolved too), adding more is easier than diluting – you could end up with a huge amount of treat -Don’t have any Stevia yet? – you can always use normal sweetener products until you are set up.
If you have un-roasted Hazelnuts roast them in the oven at 180 degree Celsius.
Roast for 5 to 10 minutes or until the skins begin to split.
Transfer the warm nuts to a kitchen towel, and rub briskly to remove some of the skins.
Keep several nuts spare for the decoration at the end.
Leave the nuts to cool and the finely chop/ grind them in the food processor or similar.
Whip the double cream adding stevia to taste, make sure you don’t whip it until it is very stiff, once you add the cocoa powder and the nuts it will become very thick.
Scoop some of the mass and form a ball with wet hands or use MCT oil on the hands instead of water to stop the mass sticking to your skin.
Roll the formed ball in chopped nuts.
Place on a tray lined with grease proof paper and place in the freezer until frozen.
– you can use the cream for filling cakes or roulades, you may need to double or triple the recipe to have enough for your project.
– replace the cream with coconut milk/ cream for dairy free version.
