Nutella Truffles


No, I haven’t decided to turn this into a cooking blog. LOL!   The Nutella Truffles are the teacher gifts my daughter is giving to her teachers for Christmas.  Rockdale County, where I teach, got out on Friday but the county we live in goes until this Thursday so I was in the unique position of actually having time to do something special for AnaBeth’s teachers.

The recipe is below if you would like to try them:)

Happy Holidays!



Nutella Truffles  (makes about 30 good sized truffles)

1 cup Nutella

1/2 cup crushed vanilla wafers

1/2 cup confectioners sugar

Mix thoroughly and add vanilla extract (about 1 – 1.5tsp) until ingredients bind well

Will be slightly dry.  If it’s too dry to roll, you can add a few drops of vegetable oil

Rub butter on your {clean} hands and roll into 1″ balls

Immediately roll in crushed hazelnuts (the butter from your hands helps the nuts stick)

That’s it!  Doesn’t need refrigerating because there is no cream.


One Dove Chocolate
