Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles Recipe


Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

¾ cup confectioners’ sugar

2 Tbsp. baking cocoa

4 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 oz. each)

6 Tbsp. butter

¼ cup heavy whipping cream

24 while hazelnuts

1 cup ground hazelnuts, toasted


In a large bowl, sift together confectioner’s sugar and cocoa; set aside.

In a small saucepan, melt candy bars and butter.  Add cream and reserved cocoa mixture.  Cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture is thickened and smooth.  Pour into an 8 inch square dish.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Using a melon baller or spoon, shape candy into 1 inch balls; press a hazelnut into each.  Reshape balls and roll in ground hazelnuts.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.        2 dozen
