White Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Recipe
- 2 1/2 pounds white chocolate, finely chopped
- 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup toasted, skinned finely ground hazelnuts
- 3-4 tablespoons cocoa powder
- Place 1 pound of chocolate in large mixing bowl. Bring cream to the boil in saucepan over medium heat. Pour cream over chocolate and let stand for 1 minute. Stir or mix until well blended.
- Add 3/4 cup of the hazelnuts and blend well. Cover and allow to set overnight at room temperature or 3-4 hours in the refrigerator.
- Form 1" balls with your hands, a melon baller, spoon, or even pastry bag. Roll balls in cocoa powder and place on waxed paper covered tray and chill covered until firm.
- Prepare remaining chocolate for coating by tempering it. Dip the centers in the tempered chocolate and place on waxed paper covered tray. Sprinkle with remaining hazelnuts before set. Allow to set until firm or chill for 10-15 minutes.
- Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 1 month or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Be sure to wrap container well with foil. Serve at room temperature. Makes about 60.
Instead of dipping the truffles in tempered chocolate, roll them in a small bowl of cocoa powder, powdered sugar, or finely chopped, toasted hazelnuts as soon as they are formed into balls. Any nuts can be substituted for the hazelnuts, both inside and outside the truffles.
