Crunchy Nutella Truffles

I can eat Nutella by the spoonfuls & finish an entire jar :-) So, before it would disappear just like that yet again, I made these beautiful truffles out of them.

Guess what I added?? Crushed Chocolate Chip Cookies & Cornflakes ..  And, they turned out super crunchy & was very light. They are super easy to make & hard to mess up :) So they make very nice gifts too

Nutella Truffles

You Will Need:

Makes 10 Truffles
  • 4 tbsp Nutella
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 8 chocolate chip cookies - crushed
  • 2 handfuls of cornflakes - crushed
  • Cocoa powder for rolling

How To:
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter & nutella together for about 2 mins.
  • Mix crushed chocolate chip cookies & cornflakes. Mix well to incorporate.
  • Set aside & allow them to come to room temprature. Make small balls out of them & roll over cocoa powder.
  • Refregerate for about 30-40 mins before serving.

I made these on a whim & I was very happy with the results. So, this recipe is definitely a keeper .. They are so easy that even your 6 year olds can help you make these

NOTES:
  • Try replacing chooclate chip cookies with digestive biscuits or even oatmeal cookies.
  • Use desicated coconut/crushed almonds or walnuts to roll the truffles.

I have been pretty big of Truffles these days. I made mine with Strawberry liqueur and mint flavour. Chocolate chip cookie sounds like a great addition!!

ahhh I LOVE nutella, too... but I haven't bought it in a while because I think they added some funky ingredients to the recipe. i'll have to find a suitable replacement (or track down the imported, old-fashioned ingredient version) stat b/c these look delish!

I have been thinking about unused cornflaks which is sitting in my pantry for more than a month. Now I find how to use them. Nice clicks and recipe. Bookmarking it.
