Healthy Homemade Ferrero Rocher

These healthy homemade Ferrero Rocher pralines are an easy, fun and delicious treat to make for the Christmas holidays, Valentines, Easter or for any special occasion. This recipe is a healthier version than the commercialized Ferrero Rocher. They only take 10 minutes to make, no bake!

I have made some personalized modifications to my homemade Ferrero Rocher recipe. For example, I have used maple syrup in place of agave syrup. My boyfriend does not like dark chocolate so I have used semisweet chocolate chips. In place of sea salt, I sometimes use pink Himalayan salt.

One thing I would like to try is a white chocolate version. I’m curious to explore this recipe some more and come up with other ideas because it’s so simple and quick to make.

If you have some ideas or suggestions on how to change this recipe up, I would love to hear about them.
