I don’t know about you but for me Ferrero Rocher is a much needed Christmas treat. The good news is that even on a diet you don’t have to go without, you can just make them yourself, saving not only the pounds gained on your waist but also the pounds spent in your purse! These are so easy to make and taste pretty much the same as Ferrero Rocher. I took a few into work and have actually had a request to make more for our last day before Christmas!
You will need :
Five level table spoons of Nutella
One Options hot chocolate (flavour of your choice) for dusting.
Anything else you fancy – such as desiccated coconut.
Mix your Weetabix and Nutella together, or throw it all in the food processor like I did.
Roll your mixture up into Ferrero Rocher sized balls and then roll in the hot chocolate. The mixture can be quite sticky so it is worthwhile dusting your hands with hot chocolate before rolling each ball.
Place into mini cake cases and leave to stand in the fridge for at least one hour. It really is that simple!
I made one batch rolled in hazelnut hot chocolate and another in white hot chocolate mixed with desiccated coconut. I have a mint hot chocolate and a orange hot chocolate ready for my next batches.
This makes approximately 16 Ferrero Rochers at just under 2 Syns each if not using the Weetabix as your Healthy B choice. A shop bought Ferrero Rocher has a Syn value of 3.5 so you could eat quite a few more of these without feeling too guilty.
Three Weetabix = 9 Syns
Five Table spoons of Nutella = 20 Syns
Options hot chocolate = 1 Syn (the sachet is 2 Syns but I used less than half of it)
Total of 30 Syns for 16 Ferrero Rochers = 1.875, which means you realistically should count them as 2 Syns each. 1.875 x 8 = 15 so you could actually sit down and eat 8 in a go if you don’t have any other Syns that day!
Don’t forget if you are adding anything to these, such as desiccated coconut, you will need to increase the Syn value.
All Syns are estimates.
