Hazelnut Truffles

Here's what you need: (Look, mom, not all Kroger Brand!) 3/4 c powdered sugar
2 Tbsp Cocoa powder
6 Tbsp butter
4 Hershey bars (I used 1.5 of the giant 4.4 oz bars)
1/4 c heavy cream
1/2 c chopped hazelnuts

Sift the sugar and cocoa together.

Melt the butter and chocolate bars over medium heat

Yummy melted butter and chocolate...two of my favorite things together.

Add the cream....

And the sugar/cocoa mixture

Whisk it until nice and smooth. Heat until thick.

Pour into a pan, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

When you are ready to finish the truffles, chop the hazelnuts and put in a shallow dish.

Form the chocolate mixture into 1 inch balls and plop into the hazelnuts.

Roll around to coat.

Put on a cookie sheet.....

YUM! Now, chill them in the fridge for a couple hours. Then store them in an air tight container in the fridge. They are best served cold. Enjoy!


  1. Yum! You better bring me some.

  2. I just made a fresh batch last night....you'll get some!
