Gluten Free Ferrero Rocher (Dairy Free & Vegan)


  • 5 tbsp free from chocolate spread you can use my homemade healthy nutella recipe - link in this post
  • 3 tbsp chopped hazelnuts crushed further (if you use my chunky nutella recipe no need to add extra)
  • whole hazelnuts
  • gluten free wafers to crush (I used gluten free ice cream wafer cones - you probably only need a couple)
  • 50g chopped hazelnuts to mix with the melted chocolate (you can add more or less measurement for this is aprox)
  • 200g dark chocolate to melt


  1. Place your chopped hazelnuts in a bag and crush further with a rolling pin.

  2. Spoon 5 tbsp of chocolate spread into a freezer proof bowl and add around 2-3 tbsp of your chopped/crushed hazelnuts, mix very thoroughly. (If you are using my chunky, healthy, vegan chocolate spread recipe then you don't need to add additional hazelnuts as there are plenty in it!)

  3. Place in the freezer for about 45 minutes

  4. Bring out the freezer and allow to soften a tiny bit for around 10 minutes (so that it's more workable and not so solid).

  5. Grab a small amount of the mixture and place a whole hazelnut in the centre. Roll the mix in your hands into a ball (your hands will get messy - make sure your hands are cold - if they get too hot, clean your hands up and cool with cold water)

  6. Place your balls on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for around 20 - 30 minutes (until they are solid)

  7. Whilst your balls are freezing crush up some gluten free wafer, I used gluten free ice cream cones for this (anything light like a wafer will work here).

  8. Remove your balls from the freezer and leave for about 5 minutes.

  9. Next, roll your balls in the gluten free wafer, it should stick really well because you left the balls out for 5 minutes. Then just put them back in the freezer whilst you do the next step.

  10. Melt some dairy free dark chocolate in a glass dish over a saucepan of simmering water, once melted allow to cool for 5 minutes.

  11. Add some chopped hazelnuts to the melted chocolate and mix in thoroughly.

  12. Remove the balls once more from the freezer and coat them in the melted chocolate.

  13. Back onto the baking sheet and leave to set in the freezer - this shouldn't take long.

  14. When you want to eat them, they are best served chilled from the fridge rather than straight from the freezer or room temp - so keep them in the fridge!

  15. Enjoy!!
