No Bake Nutella Truffles

Readers, I’m on baking form this weekend. Or as the case may be – non baking form. It’s been a fairly quiet weekend in our household. The weekend before payday usually is!

I had a few random ingredients kicking about the house and as you all know, Nutella is a particular weak spot of mine.  To resist temptation and the need to grab a spoon and wire in straight from the jar, I’ve created an oh-so-easy truffle recipe that’s great to curb a sweet craving or to hand out with coffee after dinner.  This made 18 truffles – I deliberately made them chocolate truffle sized.  You’ll get a nice little sweet kick without feeling like you’ve massively overindulged in a huge chocolate bar.

These are no bake, so great to get the kids involved.  

Happy No-Baking!

Easy No Bake Nutella Truffles 


Ingredients (makes 18 small truffles)

2 tablespoons Nutella
8 digestive biscuits
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 teaspoons low fat cream cheese
1 pack Silver Spoon Milk Chocolate Chips
Hundreds & Thousands to decorate

Method

  1. Break the biscuits into quarters and add to a food processor.  Add the Nutella, vanilla essence and cream cheese to the food processor.  Whizz until the ingredients mix together and start to form a dough-like substance.

  2. Remove from the processor and transfer to a bowl. Bring the mix together with your hands if need be. 

  3. One the mix has reached the desired consistency, break off small pieces and roll into balls.  Transfer to a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper.  Once you have 18 truffles, transfer to the fridge to chill and harden (around 1 hour in a fridge around 3 degrees celcius).
  4. Add the chocolate chips to a microwave proof bowl and melt in the microwave for 60 seconds followed by 10 second blasts if it’s not quite a liquid consistency.  I used a whole packet to cover 18 truffles. 
  5. Dip each of the chocolate truffles into the bowl (I used a teaspoon and swirled them around).  Remove from chocolate, allow any excess to drip off then transfer back to the baking tray.  Sprinkle hundreds and thousands on top of each whilst the chocolate is still a liquid consistency.

  6. Once each truffle is coated and finished, return to the fridge to set.  Truffles should be ready to eat within 30 minutes.  Store in the fridge until ready to serve.   Truffles should keep in an airtight container for 2-3 working days.
