Chocolate-Triple Hazelnut Truffles from Cooking Light

Mild milk chocolate allows the triple hit of nutty goodness to come forward in these creamy truffles; bittersweet chocolate would overpower these 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.

  • Yield: 21 servings ( Serving Size: 1 truffle )


  • 3 tablespoon(s) Nutella
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon(s) Frangelico
  • 1 tablespoon(s) light-colored corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • dash of salt
  • 5 ounce(s) milk chocolate finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup(s) toasted, salted hazelnuts finely chopped


1. Combine the first 6 ingredients in the top of a double boiler. Cook over simmering water until chocolate melts, about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Spoon mixture into a shallow dish. Let stand at room temperature 6 hours or up to overnight.

2. Scoop about 1 tablespoon chocolate mixture with a spoon. Dredge in nuts; roll into a ball. Repeat procedure with remaining chocolate mixture and nuts.
