Chocolate, cherry and hazelnut treats

200 g cherry jam or cherry preserve, with no added sugar
30 g coconut oil, to be melted
40 g pure cocoa butter, to be melted
200 g fairtrade dark chocolate (70% cocoa), melted in a bain-marie
100 ml GMO-free vegetable cream
100 g almond butter
1-2 tablespoons hazelnut butter
2 handfuls of shelled hazelnuts, more or less finely chopped

Makes 15-20 balls.


In a bowl, mix well all the ingredients except the hazelnuts. Transfer into the fridge or freezer until set. Roll into balls and roll them in the chopped hazelnuts. Chill again until ready to serve.
