Hazelnut surprise bliss balls

I was inspired to make this little creation due to seeing so many Ferrero Rocher chocolates about this time of year!

As with most raw wholefood treats, they are super easy to make and taste delicious!

The surprise element comes from finding a whole (skinless) hazelnut in the middle!

They of course don’t taste quite the same as a Ferroro Rocher, but it is a great healthy substitute!
