White Chocolate and Nutella Truffles

Nutella and white chocolate trufflesI love truffles all year round but there is something kind of holiday-ish about them. (I’m pretty sure “holiday-ish” is not a word. At all.) My friends, Nathan and Jennie, used to make these amazing Oreo truffles every Christmas. I loved getting a little container of Oreo truffles from them! To me, chocolate can sometimes be the perfect gift. 🙂Homemade Nutella trufflesWhite Chocolate and Nutella Truffles, makes 15-18

7 ounces dark chocolate
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup Nutella
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 tablespoon oil (I used vegetable)
chocolate sprinkles (optional)

In a double boiler (or a glass bowl set over simmering water) melt together the first four ingredients. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. If you leave the mixture in the refrigerator for longer than 2 hours, it will likely become too firm to work with. So just allow it to soften at room temperature until you can.How to make trufflesUse a melon baller or spoon to form small balls. I powder my hands and spoon with cocoa, so the mixture is easier to work with and doesn’t stick to everything. Once you have all the truffles formed, place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

In the mean time, melt the white chocolate and oil in a microwave safe bowl. I will microwave on high for 30 seconds, then stir, and repeat until the chocolate is melted. Dip each truffle in the melted chocolate to coat it, then place on a sheet of wax paper.Nutella trufflesAdd the chocolate sprinkles as you work, before the white chocolate has time to set. I usually drizzle on just a little more chocolate to the tops at the end, just to be fancy. Let these set over night or pop in them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Enjoy! xo. Emma

  • Just made these for New Years! They are delicious! However mine didn’t turn out as pretty…I will just have to make them again I guess 😉

  • Looking forward to making them for a friend! Wanted to pin it but Pinterest said it was either spam or inappropriate… Nutella and chocolate are never inappropriate!

  • Hi! I made these for a friend’s birthday and she loved them, but for me they were perhaps a little too heavy! So I wanted to ask, can I substitute something to make them a bit lighter? Maybe milk chocolate? Or would that ruin the taste?
    Also, how long do they keep?

    Thanks for the recipe though, they were super fun to make! I used chocolate shavings because I didn’t have sprinkles, and they looked cute like that too! My friends said they looked store-bought! 🙂

  • I made these earlier this week and let me just say, they were BOMB! I will definitely be making them again. Your directions are so clear; they were so easy to make! Thank you for the scrumptious recipe(s).

  • zina, Emma is on vacation, but I’ll do my best to answer your questions! 🙂 Try toothpicks for dipping the truffles in the chocolate and you can definitely freeze these.
    Have fun!

  • HI Emma,
    i have two questions for you…what did you use to dip your balls into the white chocolate? And Can you freeze the truffles once theyre done?
    They look amazing though, cant wait to make them 🙂

  • These look AMAZING! But the weirdest thing – they don’t really sell chocolate chips in Brazil, unless maybe you track them down in specialty markets. Such a pain for these sorts of things!

  • Truffles are awesome this time of year. And luckily for my waistline, I never think of them until Christmas. Thanks for the recipe! I will have to give these a try. I mean, I have a jar of Nutella burning a whole in my cupboard:)

  • white chocolate and nutella? it must be love! the nutella cinnamon rolls, are on my someday i will eat that, list too. it’s a drag i put myself on a nutella free diet, as of yesterday. i wonder how long that will last? given that i currently have 2 nutella jars in my cupboard.

  • Yum! I make dark chocolate truffles every Christmas, but I’ve never tried with Nutella… Will definitely try these ones.!

  • Oh my gosh! My mouth is watering while I look at my screen. I need these in my life and in my belly, stat!

  • Mmmh! That looks so delicious. And the surprise to find dark chocolate in a white truffle.

  • These look amazing!! I’ve always wanted to make truffles, but have been too nervous to try….I make peanut butter balls which I guess are a sort of variation, right?

  • pfffff these are making me drool! I think it would be interesting (and worth the effort!) to attempt these with a home-made nutella (or even just a hazelnut butter).

  • Wow, It look soooo yummy. I love it. Have a nice day.

  • Oh my goodness!!! I have tried to make white chocolate truffles – and they were a big ol’ failure. If there are two ingredients that sum up my husbands sweet tooth it would be white chocolate and Nutella. Thank you so much for this recipe. I can’t wait to surprise him with them!

  • Ok…I want to know when you are going to start shipping the wonderful homemade treats you make from your shop! 😉

  • These look SO fantastic and they really would make a holiday/cookie platter gift look great!

  • These look great, can’t wait to try! But I’m not a fan of white chocolate, so may have to substitute for another kind, or give them to my hubby!

  • I love making truffles, AND have a very personal relationship with Nutella. These will be made this holiday season for sure! Thanks for the inspiration. ps. Between reading the post and writing this comment I went into my kitchen to grab a container of Nutella and a spoon, and yes, I am eating it straight from the jar right now and dreaming about tasting it in truffle form.

  • These look so delicious! I will bookmark this post and try the recipe because I’m too curious to taste these.

  • Is the 1/4 heavy whipping cream 1/4 cup or 1/4 of the container?
    I will have to make these soon!

  • YUM. I will have to try these, if they are as easy as you say they would make great gifts for a lot of people on my list 🙂

  • I made these a few years ago to send to my boyfriend, who lived far away from me for a while. I thought, going in, that they were super hard because they TASTE fancy and difficult. But it’s so easy! These are def on my X-mas holiday baking list 🙂
