Okay, I admit it. You dragged it out of me. It’s time to come clean.
The truth is, I’ve been known to hoard…truffles.
Oh, I’m so ashamed. You see, I love throwing things away. I know it sounds wasteful, but it makes me feel like I’m finally getting organized and cleaning up the constant mess that my kids throw around the house each second they’re home. I don’t save anything except the rare, unquestionably special school project.
These? These are a keeper for sure.
A few days ago, I posted these Nutella Cookie Dough S’mores. In that post, I indicated that there were lots of ways you could use the egg-free, no-bake amazing cookie dough. And here is one of them!
When I made the s’mores I had some extra dough, so I ate a bunch of it. Full disclosure, right? But then I realized it would be so much more fun if I rolled the dough into balls, covered it in white chocolate and sprinkles, and ate the truffles as quickly as possible. No hoarding here!
Even my kids liked them. I think the pink sprinkles sold them. And my supposedly chocolate-hating son once again magically forgot his aversion to anything chocolate and gobbled them down. That boy is starting to wear me out.
But hey, I hardly mind, really. It warms a mother’s heart to have her children eat her bounty. Or something like that. Because what I just wrote sounds really weird.
So make these, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. You will not be hoarding these! Not a chance. They won’t last long enough. I guess I’ll save my truffle-hoarding tendencies for those red velvet truffles Godiva makes. Oh, happiness!
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 1/4 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk (I used two-percent)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 package white candy melts (or a color of your choice)
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter, Nutella and brown sugar until fluffy. Add the milk and vanilla and mix again. Add the flour gradually, beating until a soft, workable dough forms.
Using the palms of your hands, roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Place the balls onto waxed paper when they’re ready.
Using a microwave-safe bowl, heat the candy melts according to package directions. Stir to ensure the melts are smooth.
Working quickly, dip the dough balls into the candy melts. You can use a toothpick or a fork. Put the dipped truffle back onto the waxed paper and add sprinkles. Allow the truffle shells to harden.
Eat the truffles, but do it fast! They’ll disappear before you know it!
