Chocolate Frangelico Drops

My inspiration for these came from a Christmas recipe I make nearly every year, Rumkegeln. I replaced some of the ground oats with ground hazelnuts, and paired the hazelnuts with Frangelico, the hazelnut liqueur. I also used hazelnut-flavoured cocoa powder as well, only because I had some around. These are easy to make and taste great, even better than the rumkegeln, a little fudgey in consistency, very chocolatey, with the great taste pairing with hazelnut. And the size is great during the holidays, one will do you, there's lots of flavour in each one.

Chocolate Frangelico Drops
100 g oats, ground
50 g Hazelnuts, ground
60 g coconut oil (Palmin)
60 g Icing Sugar
3 Tbsp. instant chocolate powder
1 Tbsp. Frangelico
water (if needed)

Melt the coconut oil. Add the sugar and chocolate powder and stir; allow to cool to lukewarm. Add the cooled chocolate liquid to the ground oats and hazelnuts along with the Frangelico. Add water if dough does not stick together, adding a little bit at a time. Form into small balls; put in fridge to set.
