Few things in this world are better than Nutella. The chocolaty, sweet hazelnut spread is a beloved European import and has swept the hearts of millions stateside. What doesn’t it go with?! We’d gladly have a spoonful for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
February 5 marks World Nutella Day and February 14 rings in yet another Valentine’s Day, aka the biggest day of the year for chocolate.
All the signs are there – February is the month to go nutty for Nutella.
Make these decadent treats for friends and family or show your Valentine how much you care with Nutella!
These truffles are so good; you may not want to give them out as gifts. Go for it – keep them all to yourself!
- 24 Oreo cookies
- 6 ounces cream cheese
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- ½ cup of Nutella (plus 1 tbsp. for coating)
- 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
- Sprinkles (optional)
- Place Oreos into a plastic gallon bag. Press out air and seal the bag. With a rolling pin, crush the cookies into extremely fine crumbs. Don’t be afraid to use your muscles!
- In a large mixing bowl, place cream cheese and allow it to soften slightly. Then add ½ cup of Nutella. Combine with a hand mixer until the mixture is smooth.
- Add cookie crumbs to the Nutella and cream cheese mixture. Blend with hand mixer until completely combined.
- With your hands, roll the mixture into one inch balls to form truffles. If the mixture is too messy to roll, place it in a refrigerator and chill for 15 minutes before rolling. Place onto to a tray lined with parchment paper. After the truffles are rolled, place the tray in the freezer and chill for 15 minutes.
- Before the truffles are almost done freezing, start prepping the chocolate chips for coating. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, remaining Nutella, and vegetable oil. Place the bowl into the microwave for 30 seconds. Take the bowl out of the microwave using an oven mitt and stir the mixture with a spatula. Use caution as the bowl may be hot. Continue this process until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Be careful not to overcook the chocolate.
- Take the truffles out of the freezer and dip into the melted chocolate to coat. Use a spoon to help coat the truffle entirely. Once covered, place the truffle onto the parchment paper lined tray. Continue until each truffle is covered. Before the chocolate coating starts to set, decorate with festive sprinkles.
- Place the tray of truffles back into the fridge or freezer to set chocolate. Serve once set or chill overnight.
