Recipe from Nutella: The 30 Best Recipes, which is available to purchase here. Makes 15 Truffles | Preparation time : 20 min | Cooking time : 5 min |Chilling time : 30 min Ingredients:

  • 30 g (2 tbsp) caster/superfine sugar
  • 15 whole hazelnuts

  • 2 tbsp single/light cream
  •  30 g (1 oz)
  • Hazelnuts, toasted and chopped

Method:

  1. In a saucepan, dissolve the caster/superfine sugar with 2 tbsp water to make a caramel. When it is ready, add the hazelnuts and mix thoroughly. When the hazelnuts are well coated with caramel, place them on a sheet of baking parchment and leave to dry.
