Nutella Truffles

September 11, 2012

The Italians got it right. They feed people with pasta and pizza, and then worry about them being able to wear the latest fashion. But do you know what their greatest contribution to humanity is?

Nutella, the famous hazelnut and chocolate spread, has two years to go before their golden anniversary. We’re praying for a world-wide celebration involving free jars of Nutella when that happens because, no, this is not one of our food hacks. There is no Nutella but Nutella. The other  wannabe brands can continue to dream.


Since we don’t believe in Nutella’s hackability, we decided to do the second best thing: make Nutella better. It may sound ridiculous but it’s apparently possible.

After deciding that the “add bacon” mantra we usually ascribe to is not the way to go, we tried the “cover it with chocolate” route. The result: Nutella in a new, easy-to-eat shape! They’re just the thing to make when you get bored of spooning it out of the jar, or using your fingers as dipping sticks.

We recommend eating this with some ice cream, hot chocolate, or a crepe cake. Just because you can put even more Nutella on them.

Coincidentally, Pepper.ph frenemy, Erwan made some homemade Nutella today.

I tried this out last night, and I couldn’t shape them in to balls! they kept melting! Any tips anyone? 🙁 The recipe’s reaal good though. I ate it off of my hands every time I failed to make a perfect ball hahahaha (I swear I’m more lady like than I sound)

can I really only give it 2 stars? I wanna give it like 20 or 50.

Den Alibudbud

Try freezing it for a few minutes before molding into balls. It’s been awfully warm lately. 🙁

Lisane Bate

I’ll try it out Thanks! 😀

how many truffles does this yield?

Den Alibudbud

It would depend on how big (or small) you shape the truffles. 🙂

Katherine Jao

2-3 dozens would be a rough estimate for this recipe. Still will depend on the size you’ll be doing. 🙂

Hi there, I’m really a newb when it comes to cooking and/or preparing food. I really want to try this recipe and I was wondering if you guys could suggest good brands to use for cream, dark chocolate, cocoa, and butter? :l

Katherine Jao

Any quality brand would do. For this recipe, I used Anchor Whipping Cream, Callebaut chocolate (but you can use Hershey’s, Cadbury etc.), any cocoa powder you find in the market, and Elle & Vire butter (but any would do as well, as long as it’s not margarine).

Lesly Bries

Hrrr. These look magical. I know what I’m making later. :3

i tried making these with my sister last night. they were really delicious but melted really fast and wouldn’t harden even after refrigerating them overnight. would increasing the amount of dark chocolate morsels make them less melt-y?

The same thing happened to me. Mine were just in the fridge for over 24 hours and it won’t form into anything! Any suggestions?

Sean Dalawampu

What I did was to spoon the mixture and race against time in trying to form the balls. Afterwards, I rolled them in a plate with cocoa powder. The powder actually acts as an effective coating and insulator which prevents the nutella mixture from losing its shape and also from sticking with the container or each other. I’m actually thinking of placing a dessicant in the same container (but separated for safety reasons) as the truffles since moisture actually makes chocolates more melt-y

Earl Choa

we tried to make this, couldn’t get it to retain it’s shape, and it really melts fast, even when I just took it out of the freezer… any suggestions?

I suggest to use cream cheese instead of heavy cream. It really hardens the mixtures, no need to put it in a fridge and wait for 12 hrs to form it round. Sure you can have a perfect shape truffles as I did. All you have to do is to proceed up to the last step, then once you’re finally done, that’s the only time you have to put it inside the refrigerator and serve it chilled. 🙂 If you want it in a different shape or flavor, you may actually do so. And if you love peanuts or almonds,… Read more »
