Chocolate and Hazelnuts Bonbons

How can I describe this recipe? Sweet but not too sweet, nutty, chocolaty and fruity, a real treat. Indulge yourself and impress your friends!! :)

Ingredients for the dough
2 cups hazelnuts
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup golden syrup

Ingredients for the filling
1 medium avocado
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup golden syrup
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
Sliced almonds for garnish

1 - Soak the hazelnuts for 1 hour before start preparing the bonbons.
2 - Dry the soaked hazelnuts and pulse it in a food processor until finely ground into a flour.
3 - Add in the rest of the dough ingredients and process until it forms into a thick dough that sticks together.
4 - Lay the dough out between two sheets of baking sheet and roll to about 3/4-inch thickness.
5 - With a sharp knife, cut the dough into small squares, about 30. If there’s excess dough you can form it into a ball, roll it out, and cut again.
6 - Make the filling by blending together the ingredients until it’s uniform in colour and texture. Taste it and adjust the sweetness if need be.
7 – Roll the squares until small balls and using your fingers make a cavity in the middle of it. Spread about 1 tsp of the filling into the cavity and garnish with the sliced almonds.
