Nutella Truffles

Hi Everyone!

Happy National Nutella Day!  You know I had to participate in this wonderful day!  After all it’s Nutella!!  I don’t know if you recall, but I fell in love with Nutella when I was in Europe this summer.  I never had it before, until one day I was at my hotel and I wanted peanut butter for my yogurt parfait.  There was no peanut butter to be found.  At that time I already used my stash of Justin’s Nut Butter, so for a creamy desperateness I decided to try Nutella!  Oh man, the creamy hazelnut spread won my heart, until…

Nutella Truffles

I discovered Nutella was made with stuff I didn’t know and it is far from natural.  Plus you Guys informed me that Nutella isn’t healthy.  I thought I was getting a nice chocolate nut butter but come to find out it’s loaded with sugar!  So what does one do when they now have a Nutella addiction?  Make your own!  So I did, you can find the recipe here.

Homemade Nutella

Since I started making Nutella a month or so ago, I have been a happy little camper!   So with my homemade creamy, drippy sweet homemade Nutella I decided that I would make Nutella Truffles!!  Man, big mistake!  These truffles are so good, but at least they are pretty healthy for you too!!

Nutella Truffles

These truffles are made with my Nutella, ground gluten-free oats that I got from Trader Joe’s, maple syrup, vanilla extract and some adorable Valentine’s Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds that I picked up at Tj Maxx.  I got the idea to add the sunflower seeds from Jessica over at How Sweet It Is.  She made some cookie balls and threw in some sunflower seeds and I thought that was such a cute idea!

Nutella Truffles

These truffles are quite amazing and so addicting!!  A perfect little treat to give a loved one at Valentine’s Day!  They are soft and is totally Nutella!  I swear it’s like your almost eating it by the spoonful!!  I am loving these truffles!!  As I sit here and write this, I want to run to my fridge and have another, but I’m trying to be good, since I already ate two and it’s not even noon yet!!

I bet your curious to what one looks like when you take a bite of this little chocolaty goodness?

Nutella Truffles

Yah pure yumminess!  I almost forgot to tell you, I decided to roll my little truffles in a mixture of powdered sugar and unsweetened cocoa powder to give it more of a chocolate candy taste!  I’m telling you to pack these little guys in a box and give to someone!  They will be sure to put a smile on their face!

  1. I may just have to jump on the nutella bandwagon. I’ve never tried it before, but since I’m an avid baker I think I might be missing out!

  2. Mmmmmm Nutella!!!

  3. I think I would be fine with just having that big bowl of homemade nutella and calling it a day 🙂 I love the idea of the added texture with the sunflower seeds. I never to think to add little things like nuts and such when I’m baking unless they’re already in a recipe

  4. I’m not sure how I missed Nutella Day, but I’m seriously sad after seeing so many Nutella recipes on blogs I follow. These truffles look so good! Perfect for Valentine’s Day coming up. 🙂

  5. Love this idea, small pre portioned decadent bites! Great idea! Plus the pics are soooo super cute! Great job on the styling and the photography! I am working on improving mine, LOVE using a DSLR!

    • Thanks for the compliment! I still have a lot of photography work to do. Foodgawker turned me down! 🙁

      • Ughhh really?! I have had no luck so far with foodgawker…but then again I just got me a DSLR for Christmas and discovered the splendor is shooting in natural light, LOL! The funny thing is a took photography in high school and college, you’d think I would know about that! LOL! Chin up, your recipes look AMAZING and I like your style! Being healthy can taste good!

  6. Please send a dozen of these my way!

  7. omg! once i start eating these little cuties, i don’t think i would be able to stop…lol

  8. Wait. What? There’s a nutella day? Sounds like the best day ever.

  9. Those look yummy! I can’t wait to try these and your homemade nutella recipe!

  10. Those little sunflower seeds are from Kimmie Candies in Reno. We were there the other day and our guide told us that they had product in TJ Maxx/Home Goods. You can order them online if you can’t get them at TJs.
