Mini Christmas pralines with hazelnut and chocolate
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • ¾ cup hazelnut cream/butter/oil (names will vary depending on brand. Make sure to use one with 100% hazelnuts and no additives)
  • ½ cup agave
  • 8 dates
  • ½ cup hazelnuts
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ½ cup cacao (i use the raw kind)
Instructions
  1. Melt the coconut in a pot on low heat. Pour it into a blender and add all other ingredients (or use a high power hand blender). Run on full speed for a few minutes or until you have a completely smooth cream. Now taste, and add a little more agave if you like it sweeter.
  2. Pour the cream into little mini praline baking cups, and place in the fridge until serving time (for at least one hour).
