First blog anniversary post.

Ferrero Rocher  of my style. Everyone likes chocolate and if it is Ferrero Rocher then it is difficult to control eating them. Same is the case in my house also all are a big fan of Ferrero Rocher . I tried to make my style Ferrero Rocher at home. I ground walnuts with brown sugar and made balls with out adding any oil or ghee. It didn’t look like Ferrero Rocher but these were tasty and healthy. Everyone at my house liked them.

I decorate them in one of my empty chocolate box and serve them by saying that these are new balls made by me. This is very easy method to feed healthy walnuts to your growing kids.

This is the healthy gift to my family from my side on my first blog anniversary.

Ingredients

  1. Walnut 250 gm
  2. Sugar 150 gm( I used brown sugar)
  3. Few Pistachio for garnish(optional)

Method

  1. Grind walnuts and sugar together .
  2. Make balls by pressing them with hands.
  3. Roll them in chopped pistachio.
  4. Serve these healthy balls with milk or like this.
  5. Perfect dessert for fasting.
