  • 1 teaspoon of oil for hands
  • 5.5 ounces hazelnuts shelled, roasted, skinned and ground
  • 5.5 ounces dark or baking chocolate grated
  • 5.5 ounces powdered sugar
  • 1 egg white or 1.4 ounces aquafaba
  • 1 teaspoon sour cherry liquor or rum, non-alcoholic option: orange or lemon juice*
  • 3-4 ounces chopped hazelnuts shelled, roasted, skinned and chopped


  • Oil your hands to prevent sticking.
  • In a medium size bowl combine all ingredients. Mix well with hands until the mixture has the texture of clay.
  • Form little balls (the size of half a golf ball).
  • Dip balls in chopped hazelnuts to cover on all sides. Leave in a cool place to toughen.
  • Transfer to a cookie box. Keep in a dry, cool place for up to 10 days.



Walnuts or almonds can be used instead of hazelnuts.
Store in a cool, dark place for up to 10 days.
If using orange or lemon juice, the best is to make a reduction by boiling them on low until they have syrup consistency.
