Confession: I’ve never eaten real Ferrero Rocher Truffles. Not because I have food rules, its because I keep strict kosher (there are different levels of kosher, some do eat them, I just don’t)⁠

You can eat with freedom while having restrictions. It is your INTENTIONS that make the difference. ⁠

Eating kosher is rooted in MY values, and when you are eating in alignment with your values it feels simple and it flows.

No, its not always convenient. I remember having a box of pringles for dinner when my husband and I were travelling in Guatemala because we were low on our kosher food supply and that was pretty much all that was available in the area we were at (oh yea, and instant oatmeal, cookies, and canned corn). But we survived!!! And if I didn’t allow myself to eat with freedom that experience would’ve have been ruined by my food rules as I was already limited with the foods available to me. ⁠

You can have reasons why you don’t eat certain foods, whether you keep kosher, have allergies, or a medical condition and still eat with freedom .

INTENTIONS MATTER. Not eating a food because it doesn’t align with your values, won’t make your body feel good, or will not serve your health is very different (and will feel different + impact your mental and physical health and will being differently) than not eating a food because your focus is shrinking your body or you believe you are a “bad” for eating it, etc. ⁠

Your intention will result in very different outcomes with your relationship with food and your body. So take the time to assess what they are. ⁠

Eating intuitively is nuanced and individual – find what works for YOU. ⁠

Here’s my take on Ferrero Rocher Truffles, but remember that you should enjoy whichever version of Truffles you like! Whether you make mine or eat the original real deal – enjoy them with zero guilt and let your body give its opinion on how it feels about it!

Ferrero Rocher Truffles

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups roasted hazelnuts, skinless
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 5 oz 72% dark chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts

Directions:

  1. Place 2 cups hazelnuts and chocolate chips in a food processor and blend until smooth (~8 minutes).
  2. Measure out 1.5 cups of chocolate hazelnut mixture and place in a mixing bowl with almond flour and vanilla extract. Mix until well blended.
  3. Place in fridge for an hour so mixture hardens a bit and you can roll into balls.
  4. Roll into 1 inch balls. Place a hazelnut in center of each before rolling into a ball.
  5. Melt 5 oz. dark chocolate over double boiler or placing in microwave in 15 second intervals & stirring in between.
  6. Coat each truffle with dark chocolate and then roll in chopped hazelnuts. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper to cool. Store in freezer
