The huddle around our baby’s birthday party has ended, and I owe you two recipes. I’m kind of busy these days, so it’s going slowly, but I’ll post the last one soon as well.
The birthday went beautifully, the little one had a great time with friends and family, celebrated for three days (as befits the third birthday), he got loads of presents and we all ate well …
These truffles I found a couple of days before the birthday of the blog Roxanna’s Home Baking, and, you know, I borrowed the recipe :) They are very tasty, indeed, if you look at the ingredients you’ll be able to conclude it: chocolate, hazelnuts, nutella – something is wrong? No it isn’t! The kids liked these colorful ones, and for the grownups I made one part rolled in cocoa or powdered sugar, because they are ‘big’ so they must have serious food – right:)
- 150 g dark chocolate, should not have less than 50% cocoa
- 100 g hazelnuts
- 100 g Nutella
- 50 g of butter
- 100 ml cream
- Fry the hazelnuts in a pan for 2-3 minutes, put them in a cloth and rub the shells off while they're still warm. Grind them or finely chop.
- Heat the cream until almost boiling and pour over the chopped chocolate and cubed butter. Let it sit for a minute, then mix well with a whisk until the chocolate and butter have melted completely. Add the hazelnuts and Nutella, mix well and refrigerate for two hours, until firm enough that you can shape the truffles.
- Make them the size you want, and roll each in colorful sprinkles, cocoa, powdered sugar, hazelnuts, or anything you want. Put them in the fridge for a while, and serve them at room temperature. Enjoyment guaranteed! :)
