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.

They are a huge hit with my clients. It’s also a hit with my boyfriend as this is his all-time favourite sweet thing to eat. Yes, I’m a fan of these too.

Are you?

If so, you gotta make this healthier version than the commercialized Ferrero Rocher. The recipe is incredibly blow-your-mind easy and only takes 10 minutes.

I have made some personal modifications to these healthy homemade Ferrero Rocher pralines. 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 of these pralines. I am a huge white chocolate fan. 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 I could formulate a few other versions, I think this would be a regular dessert in our home.

I’m an avid cyclist. I have got to make a version to take on my rides. Wouldn’t that be wicked? Everyone will want my snacks. Ha!

If you have some ideas or suggestions on how to change this recipe up, I would love to hear about them. Share them in the comments section below.

Sometimes I will swap agave syrup for maple syrup or honey. I have also used Himalayan pink salt in place of sea salt. For dark chocolate, you can play around with different chips for various flavours and sweetness levels.
