  5. Melt together the Vitawerx Milk Chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave on a low temperature until combined.
  6. Turn out the half ball silicone mould and use some of the melted Vitawerx to join the two halves together like glue.
  7. Add the chopped hazelnuts to the rest of the melted chocolate mixture and thoroughly coat the balls in the nutty chocolate mixture forming a thick delicious crust.
  8. Allow to set in the fridge on wax paper. Once set, store in an airtight container.
