Place the oats in the bowl of your food processor and process as finely as possible. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until a thick smooth mass forms.
Dump the chocolate batter onto a plate or sheet of cling film and take the 22 whole toasted hazelnuts.
Take a tbsp of batter and flatten into circle. Place a hazelnut in the middle and shape the batter around it. Roll in your palms until you've got a round truffle. Place truffles on a freezer-fit plate lined with cling film and place in the freezer.
Chop dark chocolate and melt in a hot water bath (water should not boil) together with the coconut oil. While the chocolate melts, place toasted hazelnuts in a food processor and chop coarsely. Stir chocolate until smooth, then add the hazelnuts and stir.
Now, working quickly, dip chilled truffles into the chocolate hazelnut mixture and roll around, making sure they are coated evenly. Place on a plate to set.
Store the homemade Ferrero Rocher balls in an airtight container at room temperature, or, if you prefer them chilled, in the fridge.
To remove the skin off hazelnuts you need to roast them for a few minutes in the oven at 350°F, until the skin begins to crack. Then you can easily peel the skin off the nuts. Alternately, you can purchase blanched hazelnuts.
