Ferrero Rocher Truffles

On the  10th day of Christmas baking I made Ferrero Rocher Truffles…because who doesn’t looooove Ferrero Rocher chocolates?

Growing up this was my all-time favourite chocolate. I could probably eat 50 in one setting…it must be the Nutella ingredient. Nothing compares to this chocolate.

These truffles make perfect gifts, party favours, and snacks that you can freeze! I made double the portion and I’m saving the rest for New Years!

P.s. The Christmas countdown is on… only 3 more days! Yay!

Perfect Christmas dinner table favours…

Nutella is the bomb! 

Finely chop the hazelnuts, walnuts and wafers in a food processor:

Then, mix the remaining ingredients together and freeze.

Start by rolling tablespoon-balls, and place a roasted hazelnut in the centre of the truffle.

Place in the freezer to harden before covering in chocolate mixture.

Eek! These look like meatballs! 😛 

Ferro Rocher Truffles

Ingredients

    For the filling:
  • 3 cups crushed hazelnut wafer cookies
  • 2 1/2 cups finely chopped toasted hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup of finely chopped walnuts
  • 1¼ cups (10 ounces) Nutella
  • For the chocolate coating:
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1½ cups finely chopped toasted hazelnuts

Instructions

  1. Start off with the filling: Crush the walnuts, hazelnuts, hazelnut wafer cookies and add them to a bowl.
  2. Combine nuts, wafers and Nutella and mix well (it will be sticky).
  3. Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes so the mixture firms up.
  4. Shape into tablespoon-sized balls and place a hazelnut and drop of Nutella in the middle of the ball, then place balls on a baking sheet and freeze for 15-20 minutes.
  5. While waiting, stir together the chocolate and oil in a medium bowl.
  6. Melt the mixture in the microwave until fully melted, heat in intervals of 10 seconds.
  7. Add the hazelnuts and stir thoroughly to combine.
  8. When the truffle balls are ready, insert a toothpick into the truffle and dip into the melted chocolate mixture.
  9. Place the truffles onto the baking sheet. Once you've finished coating them, place back into the fridge for 15 minutes until hardened.
  10. Sprinkle some hazelnuts on top of each truffle.
  11. To serve, place truffles in cupcake liners.
