Delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

Lower Fat Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

 

This recipe was inspired by a trip I took with my girlfriends when we were in our twenties while I was living in Atlanta. My roommate Jenny was a manager of a gourmet chocolate shop so she would bring home chocolates almost every day!  Can you imagine eating a different kind of yummy, decadent chocolate every single day!?

One weekend Jenny and I and a few of my friends took a trip to Hilton Head, NC. Jenny knew I loved the Hazelnut truffles the best and she brought 2 pounds of them for the ride; I must have eaten half the box. I loved that trip and loved eating those truffles.

Ever since then I’ve thought about those delicious chocolates over the years and finally figured out a way to make them so that everyone can enjoy (in moderation of course). So here they are: my lower fat hazelnut chocolate truffles. They look beautiful to serve for company or to bring as a gift. Enjoy!

Delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

Yield: About 30 balls

Delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces good quality semisweet chocolate chips
  • 7 ounces fat free sweetened condensed milk (half of a 14 ounces can)
  • half a pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp natural hazelnut extract or oil — found in Whole foods, gourmet markets, or online. You can also use your favorite flavor extract in its place such as orange, coconut, coffee, use your imagination!
  • 2 tbsp milk chocolate chips melted
  • 1 ounces white chocolate, not the white chocolate chips because they will not melt properly
  • 1 tsp canola oil divided between the milk chocolate and the white chocolate

Directions:

  1. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate with the condensed milk. Add the extracts.
  2. Stir up and the chocolate will start to thicken. Place in fridge for about half hour or so until it has hardened enough to form into balls.
  3. Roll up to make about 30 balls.
  4. Melt your white and milk chocolate along with the oil in separate microwave safe bowls and then, with a fork or spoon, drizzle over the truffles.
