Nutella Chocolate Truffles

The best part is Chocolate Truffles are so easy! Wonder why didn’t I dread to make them earlier. I thought it’s quite difficult but I couldn’t resist making them. So I decided to make them this time anyhow. Actually once you master the art of handling chocolate it’s a piece of cake even kids can make them under observation.

I hope my family, loved ones and friends love this yummy Nutella Chocolate Truffles! Actually I have made more for small kids of my sister in law and the youngest one from them is really cute. He adores me I adore him looks like my second love ;)

Wish I could have parceled some to my sister :)…. anyways there is always a next time. Yippies  I am gonna meet my folks and my pet after such a long time. I am missing them a lot.

This Nutella Chocolate Truffles are made with few basic ingredients easily found in your kitchen. In fact you can use your own filling like tuti fruity, candies, light candy fruit like melon and apricots. You can also use your own choice of nuts like pistachios, cashews etc.

This does look delicious and it is hard to believe that it is so easy to make! I think homemade fudge is a real nightmare to make, but this truffle recipe does make me want to try this. Also, you made some great choices on the flavors to blend together-yum!
