For the Tigernut Balls:

  1. Place your tigernut butter in the refrigerator for approximately 30 mins or until firm.
  2. Once firm, roll tigernut butter into balls by the teaspoon. Place balls onto a parchment paper lined freezer-safe dish.
  3. Place into the freezer for 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place coconut cream, coconut oil, carob powder, and maple syrup into a saucepan over med heat. Continually whisk the mixture.
  5. Once completely heated through, whisk in the gelatin powder and mix thoroughly.
  6. Remove from heat and let cool.
  7. After 20 minutes, remove the balls from the freezer.
  8. Drop balls one at a time in melted “chocolate”.
  9. Using a fork or slotted spoon, remove from the chocolate, letting the excess drip off.
  10. Place back onto parchment lined dish and put back into the freezer for 20 minutes to set. Now you could stop here, OR add a second layer of chocolate (totally recommend the latter)!
  11. If adding another chocolate layer, repeat steps 7-10.
  12. Store in a freezer safe container. Place balls in refrigerator to soften 20-30 minutes before serving.
  13. Enjoy!
