I LOVE Nutella. I eat it by the spoonful and I am quite an expert when it comes to this delicious chocolate hazelnut concoction. (Seriously, I am…Klout tells me so!) So, after recently purchasing the new jumbo sized jar of Nutella, I decided that I MUST do something with it, aside from just eating it off a spoon. The recipe I came up with is Coconut Nutella Truffles.
These took about 5 minutes to throw together, and after refrigerating time, you can have them completely done in less than an hour. Enjoy!
COCONUT NUTELLA TRUFFLES
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 c powdered sugar, sifted (plus a bit more for rolling)
1/2 c Nutella
1 cup shredded coconut
Cream softened cream cheese in an electric mixer and slowly add in the sifted powdered sugar. Next, add the Nutella. Once this is thoroughly, mixed, turn off the mixer and add the shredded coconut, mixing it in by hand. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Once the mixture is firm enough, (it should take about 30-45 minutes) scoop into truffles and roll in powdered sugar. You’ll probably want to return them to the refrigerator for a while, they’ll hold their shape better after being refrigerated again.
I hope you’ll give this recipe a try, and if you do, let me know how it turns out!
