Chocolate Hazelnut Bliss Balls, Baci Inspired (V, GF)

I think Baci, which means “kisses” in Italian, is next to Ferrero Rocher one of the really great small treats. Every Baci comes with a little message folded around it. I want to be true to that original idea, so I also love to write little messages when I’m creating these little bliss balls. In this way they can be a really nice surprise for the person you leave the message to.

I use my vegan Nutella as the inside filling for this recipe. Into it I mix crushed roasted hazelnuts and I use a whole roasted hazelnut to form the crown of the bliss ball. Then I dip the whole ball into melted chocolate.

  • First you need to make homemade vegan Nutella. You will need a little more than 1/2 of a batch for this recipe.
  • Roast hazelnuts at 180 °C for 10 min. Leave them to cool then rub their skin off with your hands.
  • Take 9 hazelnuts and put them aside. They will be used as a crown for the bliss balls later.
  • Take the rest of hazelnuts and cut them into small pieces with a knife. Alternatively you can crush them with the back of a fork. Mix crushed nuts into Nutella.
  • Divide this mixture into 9 equal parts. Take one piece and shape it into a ball. Next take one whole hazelnut and gently press it on top of the ball. Repeat with the rest of the pieces and hazelnuts. Put balls in the fridge while you melt the chocolate.
  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler over low heat. Dip every ball into melted chocolate so that the chocolate is all around the ball. For a better look help yourself with two little spoons to turn around and carry the balls from chocolate to a plate with a baking paper so you don't leave your fingerprints on the wet chocolate.
  • Put bliss balls in the fridge for the chocolate to harden. Meanwhile write your beautiful little messages on pieces of paper to put beside the sweets.


*The recipe was created with tips from Texanerin Baking.
*You can also use store bought hazelnut chocolate spread. I highly recommend Valsoia.
*Prep time does not include time for making vegan Nutella and time in the fridge for the chocolate to harden.
