Super simple Copycat Ferrero Rocher® Chia Pudding made in minutes in the food processor. A guilt-free holiday treat that’s gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan.
There’s just something about Ferrero Rocher® Truffles that always makes me think of the holidays. Going all the way back to childhood, I used to specifically love those gold covered truffles right around Christmas time.
Nutty hazelnuts covered in chocolate with a smooth cream inside — it’s just the perfect holiday treat.
But who needs all those artificial ingredients and sweeteners when you can make your own Copycat Ferrero Rocher® dessert at home.
Because we’re all grown up now, instead of the usual candy form, I decided my copycat dessert would be better in chia pudding form and served in a martini glass.
Copycat Ferrero Rocher® Chia Pudding Recipe
This chia pudding requires minimal prep and clean up time. You only need a handful of ingredients – toasted hazelnuts, cacao powder, maple syrup, coconut cream, chia seeds, and Grand Marnier® (for that extra grownup touch).
Everything is blended together in a food processor until the smooth, rich, and creamy chia pudding is ready. Then you just pour it in the martini glasses and let it set in the fridge for a few hours. Serve sprinkled with crushed nuts and chocolate shavings. This is a healthier, deconstructed form of the classic.
My holiday dessert home chef tip: For a guilt free serving of dessert, do not use refined sugars – instead opt for sweeteners such as maple syrup, honey, or dates. These are significantly healthier than regular white powdered sugar and make for healthier holiday desserts.
Next time you’re craving all those chocolate hazelnut Ferrero Rocher® flavors, skip the golden truffles and make your own healthier take on the classic at home. This is creamy, dreamy, rich, nutty, and chocolatey – exactly how a holiday dessert should be.
