Ingredients

Truffles

  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces milk chocolate good quality
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate good quality
  • 1/4 cup Nutella

Coating

  • 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Nutella
  • ~1/4 cup dark cocoa powder

Instructions

Truffles

  • Place milk chocolate and dark chocolate into a medium to large sized heat safe bowl. Set aside.
  • In a small sauce pan on stove top over medium heat, stir together heavy whipping cream, butter, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once boiling, pour mixture over chocolate chips. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Remove plastic wrap and whisk until smooth. Then whisk Nutella into chocolate mixture until smooth.
  • Place bowl in refrigerator for 15 minutes, then stir well. Place bowl back in refrigerator for another 15 minutes, then stir well.
  • Again, place bowl back in refrigerator, but stir after 5 minutes. Repeat the cooling, then stirring, every 5 minutes until chocolate is firm enough to form into balls. This will take 10-15 minutes total.
  • Once firm, form chocolate into about 1" round balls. Place on parchment paper or silicone mat. Put formed balls in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (you may can keep the balls in the fridge for up to 24 hours, but if you do this make sure you put them in a container that seals, or cover them in plastic).

Coating

  • On a working surface lay out a large piece of parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Place semi-sweet chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Heat on 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring after each increment, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Once smooth, stir in Nutella until smooth.
  • Remove balls from refrigerator. Use a fork to roll balls, 1 or 2 at a time, through melted chocolate. Use fork to pick up coated balls so that excess chocolate drips off balls into bowl. Place coated balls on parchment paper or silicone mat. Once you have coated a few balls, dust cocoa powder lightly over truffles (you can do this with a mesh strainer or sifter).
  • Let truffles sit for 30-60 minutes before serving or storing.
