Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles are made with only a few simple ingredients. Chocolate hazelnut spread is combined with chocolate, hazelnuts and cream to create an easy yet impressive dessert that everyone will love!


  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chopped into small pieces
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped into small pieces
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup hazelnut spread
  • ¼ cup whole hazelnuts
  • ¼ cup chopped hazelnuts


  1. In a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, melt 4 ounces of semisweet chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, heavy cream, and hazelnut spread. Stir together until melted. Remove from heat and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until the mixture firms up a bit. You want it firm but easy to work with.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a small cookie scoop or spoon, scoop out about ½ tablespoon of mixture and flatten. Add a whole hazelnut on top, then scoop out another ½ tablespoon of mixture, cover hazelnut and then roll into a one-inch ball. Place on prepared baking sheet, repeat with remaining mixture and chill in freezer for 20 minutes. When ready to dip the truffles, melt the remaining 8 ounces of chopped semisweet chocolate in a clean heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Dip each chilled truffle, one at a time, coating in chocolate and shaking gently to remove the excess. (If at any point during dipping, the chocolate-hazelnut balls become too soft, return to the freezer to chill for 20 minutes.) Transfer to the baking sheet. Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts on top quickly after dipping each truffle before the chocolate sets. Once all the truffles have been dipped, store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
