THE RECIPE

Homemade Ferrero Rocher Truffles

Recreate your favorite candy at home

Ferrero Rocher truffles just may be one of our favorite candies of all time. The plastic boxes of gold wrapped truffles bring back memories of travels abroad and are a perfect gift for someone with a sweet tooth. Now, you can recreate the flavor and texture of these truffles at home! With only 5 ingredients, Tessa uses nutella, toasted hazelnuts, and crushed hazelnut wafer cookies for a creamy filling with crunch. After chilling, the balls are coated with a smooth chocolate ganache studded with little bits of toasted hazelnuts. This is the perfect (albeit slightly messy) project for an afternoon with the kids or to make as a homemade gift for family or friends. Wrap the truffles in decorative foil and adorn with a DIY sticker to make them look like the real thing.
