Home made Raffaello

It's so easy to make it at home! And, I think it's also healthier than the original. Let's see what the ingredients are in the shop version
Ingredients: Desiccated Coconut (23.5%), Sugar, Vegetable Oil, Skim Milk Powder, Vegetable Fats, Whole Almond (8%), Wheat Flour, Whey Powder, Flavourings, Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin), Rye Flour, Raising Agent (Sodium Bicarbonate), Salt. "Contains milk, almonds, gluten, soy"
So people with dairy or gluten intolerance cannot eat Raffaello. Unlike my home made version :)


1 jar (200ml) home made coconella 
approx. 16 almonds, blanched
desiccated coconut 

Put a teaspoon of coconella into your hand and place the almond into the centre. 
Bring together the outer edges. Make sure that the almond is covered completely, then roll in between your palms to form a nice ball. 
Put desiccated coconut in a small bowl and roll the coconut balls in it one at a time. 
Store them under 20 C. 

Variations for wellbeing
Dairy intolerance: enjoy as is.
Gluten intolerance: enjoy as is.
Paleo: enjoy as is.
