- 3/4 cup hazelnuts
- 8 pitted medjool dates
- 8 Turkish apricots
- 1 tsp. virgin coconut oil
- 1 Tbsp. hazelnut butter
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. kosher sea salt
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ground cardamon
- 1 Tbsp. unsweetened raw cacao powder
TOPPINGS: Dry edible rose petals.
Place the hazelnuts, cinnamon, cardamon and sea salt into a food processor and pulse until fully crushed before forming into a butter texture. Add the dates, apricots, coconut oil, hazelnut butter, vanilla extract and cacao powder and pulse until you get a sticky mixture. Take a tablespoon of the mixture, roll into small balls and cover with rose petals. Place the ready balls into the freezer for about 30 minutes for a firm texture. Remove and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
NOTE: Makes about 20 bites depending on the size. To have a more chocolaty flavor, you can simply add an extra teaspoon cacao powder to the recipe.
