Easy Nutella Peanut Butter Truffles
 
Author: 
Ingredients
  • 12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1 13 oz container Nutella
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
Instructions
First, make the truffle mixture:
  1. In a small pot, place the semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter on low.
  2. Once the chocolate is a smooth consistency, add in 3 tbsp of Nutella and stir.
  3. Then, add in the heavy cream and stir until the mixture is very smooth.
  4. Pour mixture into a bowl and place the bowl into the freezer for about 1½ hours until mixture is firm.
Then, make the truffles:
  1. Take mixture out of freezer.
  2. Take out a baking sheet and place parchment paper on it.
  3. Scoop the mixture into firm balls and place on parchment paper.
  4. Place the formed truffles back in freezer for 30-45min -- making sure they are very firm.
Finally, make the Nutella and peanut butter coating:
  1. Put the remaining Nutella and ¼ cup peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave for about 35 seconds. Stir, and then zap again for 15 seconds until you get a nice, smooth consistency.
  2. Dip each frozen truffle into the hot mixture and place back onto the parchment paper.
  3. Dust with powdered sugar and place back in the freezer until you are ready to eat them.
