Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles


This is my 100th post on my little blog! Yay!

I thought I’d celebrate by sharing my favourite truffle recipe. These truffles are the easiest things you will ever make, and absolutely everyone loves them.


There is no baking time, no resting time, no melting ingredients, no mixer. These are a one-bowl affair.


I’m a huge fan of these, and I’ve been making them since I was about 12.

The condensed milk, coconut and cocoa inside them make a yummy, chewy truffle and there are crunchy chunks of biscuit inside. I love them!


I usually coat them in coconut, but used crushed up roasted nuts here to mix it up a little. You could also coat them in cocoa or melted chocolate.

Store them in the fridge and they will last for a week or so (if you don’t eat them all before then!). Enjoy!


CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT TRUFFLES

150g Marie biscuits (plain tea biscuits)
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 tbsp cocoa
400g condensed milk
1 cup crushed nuts, for coating (I used almonds and hazelnuts)

Line a tray with baking paper and crush the biscuits into small chunks.

In a large bowl, combine the crushed biscuits, 1 cup of coconut, the cocoa and condensed milk.

Roll spoonfuls of the mixture into balls and coat them in the crushed nuts. Don’t resist licking all the mixture off your fingers!

Place on the lined tray and refrigerate overnight. Makes 20-30 truffles.

    For dessicated coconut, do you use sweetened or unsweetened? Thanks! Val

    • Unsweetened :-) that’s all we can buy here, but I’m sure you could use either, particularly when coating them!

    Hi Natasha! Made these truffles for a second time. Many people love them as well as I! I was wondering though if you ever tried using chopped roasted hazelnuts inside instead of coconut. For some reason, some of my in-laws and coworkers do not like coconut so they did not want to try them;( Or, do you have any other ideas of what i can use inside the truffles?

    • Hi Valerie! So glad you like the truffles :-) I haven’t tried them with nuts inside, but I’m sure you could use a hazelnut meal, or more crushed biscuits, or maybe some cake crumbs? I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! Just try to get the consistency the same so they set. Yum. Let me know what combination you try and how it works :-D

        Thanks again! You are the best! I think I will try it with hazelnut meal inside and chopped nuts on the outside….or maybe graham crumbs on the inside and hazelnuts on the outside;) Yum!!!
