Raffaello Rocher Chocolates History

Raffaello Rocher chocolates were created by the Italian confectionery company Ferrero SpA. The company is famous for producing several beloved chocolate brands including Nutella, Ferrero Rocher, and Kinder Chocolate.

The Raffaello chocolates were first introduced in 1990 and have been a popular choice ever since. They are made with a creamy white almond center surrounded by a crispy wafer shell and coated with coconut flakes.

The name “Raffaello” was inspired by the Italian Renaissance painter Raphael, who was known for his serene and delicate artwork. This name was chosen to reflect the elegant and sophisticated nature of the chocolates.

Today, Raffaello chocolates are enjoyed all over the world and are often given as gifts or used to add a touch of luxury to special occasions.

Instructions on How To Make Vegan Raffaello Rocher

Alright, let’s dive into the magic of crafting your own Sugar-Free Raffaello Rocher! This recipe is a breeze, taking just a few minutes of your time. 

  1. In a small bowl, combine the desiccated coconut, Swerve, and melted coconut oil. Stir well until the sweetener is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  2. To make heart-shaped fat bombs, I use ice cube trays and fill each cavity with about 1 teaspoon of the mixture. Press a hazelnut into the center, then cover it with another teaspoon of the mixture. Press firmly to compact the mixture.
  3. To make round-shaped fat bombs, scoop out about 1 tablespoon scoop of the mixture and form balls between your palms. Flatten it slightly, then place a hazelnut in the center. Wrap the mixture around the hazelnut and roll it into a ball again. Press firmly to compact the mixture.
  4. Place the fat bombs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes, or until firm.
  5. Enjoy your Raffaello keto fat bombs, or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Tips and Tricks:

  • The heat from your hands will help the mixture to warm up slightly, which makes it easier to form the balls. However, if the mixture becomes too warm, it will lose its shape and fall apart. If this happens, refrigerate the mixture for a few minutes before continuing.
  • If you prefer a sweeter taste, you can increase the amount of Swerve or use another low-carb sweetener of your choice. You can also add some vanilla extract or almond extract for extra flavor.
  • You can experiment with different types of nuts, such as almonds or macadamia nuts, for a different flavor and texture. You can also coat the fat bombs with some extra shredded coconut for a more authentic Raffaello look.

Q: How can I prevent the fat bombs from falling apart?

Q: Are these Raffaello keto fat bombs vegan and dairy-free?

A: Yes, these Raffaello keto fat bombs are vegan and dairy-free. They are made with shredded coconut, coconut oil, Swerve, and hazelnuts. No animal products or dairy products are used in this recipe. However, if you want to make them even creamier and richer, you can use vegan cream cheese instead of coconut oil, or coconut butter instead of coconut oil. Coconut butter has a more intense coconut flavor and a smoother texture than coconut oil, but it might be harder to find and more expensive. You can use either one depending on your preference and budget.
