Nutella, the hazelnut spread that tastes sinfully yummy on a slice of bread can also manifest itself into many other delicacies :) Yes and I happen to make truffles that I saw while browsing through the net. Imagine making chocolate truffles at home in a jiffy! and gifting it to your loved ones! Perhaps that'll be the best gift you would ever give! a box of chocolate truffles packed with love, warmth and affection silently lying folded inside :) Wouldn't that be a pleasant surprise? :)
|Milk biscuit or cookies
|Corn flakes/ muesli
Note: If you don't have nutella, you can use our very own dairy milk chocolate bar :)
1. Using a double boiler will help, so place a saucepan with water on medium heat and in another bowl add nutella and butter and place it on the saucepan. slowly stir the mixture until it melts and reaches a liquid consistency.
2. Crush the biscuits and add the cornflakes to the mixture. Incorporate it and make jamoon sized balls and allow it to cool on a parchment paper.
3. Roll them on coco powder and arrange them on a tray. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours and enjoy it.
Instead of double boiling you could use the microwave and melt it for about 1 or 2 minutes. I preferred double boiling only because there's even mixing and you'll be able to manage the consistency right before your eye. Also microwave temperature settings may vary from one another, so there are chances that it may burn the mixture.
Adding muesli will enhance the flavour of the truffles since it has nuts and raisins.
I used one of the cream biscuits that is available here, you could use plain milk biscuits too if you want.
