Not to worry, these dino bites are not only adorable, they are also very easy to make. You can shape them however you want them to look like, if you have no dinosaur mould, that's fine. You can use your trusty ice tray to do the chore, same delish outcome!
The only tools you will be needing are a mini food processor, bowl, spoon and a mould. Have fun and spoil the kid in you! :)
Makes about 8 small dino bites
All raw (organic where possible)
Raw cacao is also ethically-sourced
- 1 oz (about 2 tbsp) hazelnuts
- 2 tsps cacao butter
- 1 tsp agave nectar (may be substituted with maple syrup)
- 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsps cacao butter
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
* This is dark chocolate version, so if you want it the coating to be sweet, add a tinge of maple or agave nectar
Mix all the coating ingredients in a bowl thoroughly. Spoon chocolate mixture in the mould til the base is fully covered then refrigerate for few minutes or until hard.
Process all the filling ingredients in a mini food processor until smooth and combine. It should be a little gooey. Shape them into tiny balls.
Remove the mould from the refrigerator. Put the balls on top of the coated base and then pour the rest of the chocolate mixture on top ensuring that the hazelnut balls are fully covered to the top. Refrigerate again. It takes about 10 - 15 minutes for the chocolate to harden.
**You might have leftovers, you can just make more coating to make more bites.
