Aren’t those so pretty?!?!?
These Nutella truffles happened by accident. I was trying to come up with a Nutella Chex mix snack, but my first attempt was a TOTAL disaster. Well, that’s what I thought at first. I left my disaster to sit on the counter while I continued to play with my recipe, which I finally figured out.
After a while, it was finally time to do the dishes and I noticed the mixture had hardened and so I was dreading the clean up. Who doesn’t, right? While I was starting to scrape it out of the bowl, I realized that it was PERFECT TRUFFLE CONSISTENCY. That’s right, my HUGE mistake, was going to be a truffle. Could all the stars be aligning just right? Nutella truffles!

Nutella Truffles are little bites of Heaven!
Nutella truffles are little bites of heaven! Actually, they are simple and delicious 4-ingredient holiday sweets! No baking required for this easy Christmas dessert.
- 1 1/2 cups Nutella
- 2 tbls butter
- 1 tsp real vanilla extract
- holiday colored sprinkles, cocoa powder, etc
- In a medium, microwave-safe, bowl add Nutella and butter. Heat for 30 seconds or until butter is melted. Stir well to combine. Stir in vanilla. Nutella will go from a silky texture to a rough clumpy texture. Stir until well combined. Allow mixture to sit at room temperature to cool, for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour.
- Scoop out mixture by the tablespoonful and roll into balls. Roll balls in small dish filled with holiday sprinkles or other topping. After all truffles have been rolled, place in the fridge to finish cooling.

Those looks really pretty and not too hard to make at all! Do they hold their shape pretty well? After I had an oozing dessert fiasco last week, I’m a little bit timid. 🙂
Yes, they did. I kept them out on the counter for a party and they were fine. A bit soft, but held their shape nicely. You could keep them in the fridge until ready to serve to keep them really firm.
