Nutella Truffles

Nutella Truffles are a chocolaty indulgence in a bite. They’re fudgy, satisfying and oh so good!
Ingredients
  1. 14 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate
  2. 1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut spread (I used Nutella)
  3. 1/3 cup heavy cream
  4. 1 teaspoon vegetable or canola oil, optional
  5. roasted, finely chopped hazelnuts for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
  2. 1. Place 10 ounces of the chocolate into a medium bowl. Using the microwave or your stove, heat up heavy cream until hot, but not boiling. Pour over the chocolate and let stand for 1-2 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, stir mixture until fully combined and chocolate is melted. Stir in chocolate hazelnut spread and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.
  3. 2. With the help of a small cookie scoop (about 1 teaspoon), scoop out chocolate mixture and form into balls. Place onto prepared cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 15-30 minutes.
  4. 4. Heat remaining chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl until completely melted. Add oil, if using, and stir to combine. Remove chocolate balls form the freezer and place one ball at a time into the melted chocolate. Using a fork, evenly coat each ball with the chocolate. Use the fork to remove the truffle from the chocolate and before transferring it back to the baking sheet, slightly tap the fork against the side of the bowl to get rid of any excess chocolate. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with remaining chocolate balls.
  5. Pour leftover melted chocolate into a small ziptop bag, cut off one corner and pipe melted chocolate in desired design on top and finish with hazelnuts.
  6. 5. Return truffles to the fridge or freezer for 15 minutes or until truffles are set. Devour!
Notes
  1. Nutella Truffles will keep up to 7 days stored in the fridge or up to 4 weeks in the freezer.
