Keto Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Truffles
Whether its for a special occasion like Valentine’s Day, or just an everyday snack to have on hand, these Keto Ferrero Rocher hazelnut truffles are sure to be a HUGE hit! Not only are they beautiful, but they taste incredible too. Made with my famous Homemade Sugar-free Nutella and coated in Lily’s chocolate, they’re a sugar-free, gluten-free treat that’s actually good for you.
While traditional Ferrero Rocher contain lots of processed sugars, these keto truffles have just 1.2g net carbs per ball, so they won’t even knock you out of ketosis!
Alright, guys, it’s time for some hard truths. As much as you may love store-bought Ferrero Rocher, store-bought Ferrero Rocher does not love you back. One serving of Ferrero Rocher (3 balls) contains 18g of carbs, 15g of which comes from sugar. With only 1g of fiber in three balls, a serving size has a total of 17g of net carbs. That’s almost as much as half a can of soda.
Now, compare that to these Keto Ferrero Rocher hazelnut truffles. Three balls have just 7.8g of carbs, only .18g of which are from sugar! With 4.2g of fiber in three balls, a serving only contains a total of 3.6g of net carbs, or 1.2g net carbs per ball! Now, THAT is reciprocal love!
I’m going to be honest with you- making these Keto Ferrero Rocher hazelnut truffles is a bit involved and can’t be rushed. That said, I’m a firm believer in labours of love, and would definitely put hazelnut truffles in the “worthy of time investment” category.
First things first, you’ll need to prepare a batch of my homemade sugar-free Nutella. I recommend making it a few hours beforehand so it has a chance to cool completely.
Once you have the Nutella prepared, place it in a small bowl and use a cookie scooper to scoop a ball shape. Place one roasted hazelnut in the centre of the ball and, using your hands, roll until packed and smooth. If the Nutella is sticky and difficult to manage, try wetting your hands a bit before rolling.
Next, roll each ball of Nutella in some melted sugar-free chocolate (I use Lily’s baking chips). I like to use two forks to do this because they allow the excess chocolate to easily roll off back in to the bowl. Once the Nutella ball has taken a swim in some chocolate, roll it around in crushed hazelnuts and transfer to a tray to set. For faster drying and sooner devouring, place the tray in the fridge!
Once the outer chocolate shell on the truffles has hardened, serve them stacked on a plate for the classic Ferrero Rocher pyramid! If you have some gold foil, wrap each truffle individually and use them in an adorable gift bag.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. I don’t recommend freezing these Keto Ferrero Rocher truffles because the change in temperature alters the consistency of the Nutella too much and can cause cracking as the truffles thaw.
Traditional Nutella contains a ton of processed sugar, making it a big no-no if you’re following a keto diet. But, not to worry! My super healthy Nutella recipe is totally sugar-free, so you can feel good about having it by the spoonful!
And, since this Keto Ferrero Rocher recipe uses my homemade sugar-free Nutella, you can also feel good about chowing down on a few of these truffles. With just 1.2g net carbs per ball, they’re a creamy, crunchy, delicious treat that won’t knock you out of ketosis!

Keto Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Truffles
- 1 batch of my Homemade Sugar-free Nutella
- 1 cup Lily’s Dark Chocolate Baking Chips
- 1 cup hazelnuts
- Prepare a batch of my Homemade Sugar-free Nutella and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Spread 1/2 cup hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast for 10 minutes. Watch them closely to make sure they don’t burn.
- Remove hazelnuts from the oven and remove the skins as much as possible*. Set 24-30 hazelnuts aside and place the rest in a food processor. Using the chop function, blend the nuts until coarse. Set aside on a plate or tray for rolling.
- Using a 1 teaspoon scoop, scoop a ball of my homemade sugar-free Nutella and place one roasted hazelnut in the centre. Using your hands, roll into a ball and place on a baking sheet or plate**. Repeat until all of the Nutella has been used up.
- Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave. If microwaving, pause every 20-30 seconds and stir to ensure you don’t burn the chocolate.
- Using two forks, roll the nutella balls in the melted chocolate one at a time, letting the excess chocolate drip off back in to the bowl. Roll each chocolate covered ball in the blended hazelnuts and set back on the baking sheet or plate. Repeat until all the Nutella balls are rolled in chocolate and nuts.
- Place tray or plate in the fridge and let set for 10 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for best results.
- *Rub hazelnuts between two sheets of paper towels to get stubborn skins to come off!
- **Use slightly damp hands if the nutella is sticky.
