Hands-on time 20 mins
Total time 6 hrs, 20 mins
Yield Serves 21 (serving size: 1 truffle)
Mild milk chocolate allows the triple hit of nutty goodness to come forward in these creamy truffles; bittersweet chocolate would overpower those flavors. To speed up prep, chill the chocolate mixture for 1 hour or until completely set; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to soften before scooping.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons hazelnut-chocolate spread (such as Nutella)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Frangelico (hazelnut-flavored liqueur)
  • 1 tablespoon light-colored corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash of salt
  • 5 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped salted hazelnuts, toasted
