Nutella Truffles

I have had this recipe ready to test for a little over a week now and finally got around to making these today.  They were pretty good, however I feel like my previous truffle recipe is slightly better, the upside to this one though is that the prep time is much quicker.  I hope you enjoy!
  • 6 oz chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup soft butter, diced
  • 1/3 cup Nutella
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped hazelnuts
  • sprinkles, cocoa powder, powder sugar or finely chopped hazelnuts for coating
  1. Place the finely chopped chocolate and diced butter in a heatproof bowl.
  2. Pour the cream into a small saucepan over medium heat.
  3. When the cream is just about to boil, pout it over the butter and chocolate.
  4. Let it sit for almost 1 minute and slowly whisk it together until it becomes smooth, silky, shiny and uniform chocolate mixture.
  5. Stir in the Nutella and chopped hazelnuts.
  6. Mix to combine.
  7. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours until easy to handle.
  8. When the mixture is chilled enough to handle, take small pieces (little over a teaspoon) and roll them between your palms to get them round. If it gets too sticky, dust your palms with a little cocoa powder.
  9. Once all the balls are done roll them in sprinkles, cocoa powder, powder sugar or finely chopped hazelnuts to cover.
  10. Keep the truffles in an air-tight container.
  11. Serve at room temperature.
