Nutella Truffles w/Raspberry Sauce

You KNOW I have a wicked sweet tooth & you KNOW how much I am madly passionate about Nutella! So hello why not put two of my favorite things together! Sheer bliss! I don’t know why I hadn’t made these sooner. They are little bites of pure happiness. You look at them and think, WOW that has to be complicated. Too much trouble. But NO! They’re really not! You can make these much faster than you can a cake. Not faster than just dipping your spoon into the Nutella jar but fast nonetheless {you can do that while they’re setting up in the fridge tee hee}

The nice people over at Challenge Dairy recently contacted me to let me know about a new promotion they’re doing called “The Real Challenge for Real Baker’s Photo Contest” Where you can enter to win over $2,500 in Nordic Ware Prizes. Nice eh? Who couldn’t use a few extra pans! Visit Challenge Dairy for all the rules & regulations and to submit your entry! I’m submitting this baby…

I’ll let you in on the secret to these truffles…Come a little closer…Nordic Ware sent me this gaw-geous Bundt Tea Cake & Candy Mold Pan to try out! Hence how these beauties came out so purty ; ) I will say that you need to use cooking spray with FLOUR to coat these. If you try to just use cooking spray and then dust with flour well you’re going to get truffles that look like goopy snow capped mountains {don’t ask me how I know : ( } Just trust me!


Don’t you want a bite? The filling possibilities are endless but you know that my mind ALWAYS goes to Nutella first. Just can’t help it. I am a Nutella-holic! {Nutella if you’re listening I think we’d make a great team! Call me *wink wink*) Okay focusing…The Ghiradelli chocolate melted beautifully for me and set up nicely in this recipe. The small dab of butter mixed in just made it silky and smooth.

Speaking of butter, if you haven’t tried Challenge Butter the quality is amazing. You can click on “Where to Buy” tab on their site to find a coupon and the retailers that carry Challenge Dairy Products. Sadly they’re not available in all states but here’s to hoping they will expand and SOON *pleading*

& so you can make these babies too! We’re GIVING AWAY this fantastic Nordic Ware Pan!

Nutella Truffles with Raspberry Sauce
What you’ll need:
2  – 11.5 ounce packages of chocolate (I used Ghirardelli 60%  Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
13 ounces Nutella
6 ounces fresh Raspberries
1 tablespoon sugar {more if you like your sauce sweeter}

Special Equipment: Nordic Ware Bundt Tea Cake & Candy Mold – Thirty 1/8 cup cavities

What to do:
1. Using a double boiler, place chocolate into the top of double boiler and melt chocolate over the simmering water, stirring as necessary. When chocolate is melted turn off heat and add pat of butter. Mix together until butter is combined.

2. While chocolate is melting, spray your molds with cooking spray with flour. Spoon some of the chocolate into the molds. After all the molds have chocolate invert the mold pan over a Silpat mat. Wait a few seconds until all excess chocolate has dripped out. Try to clean as much of the excess off of the top of the mold as possible. Place mold into the refrigerator to allow shell to harden. Approx 15-20 minutes.

3. When shells have hardened remove mold from refrigerator. {IF your melted chocolate has begun to set, return double boiler to heat and allow to re-melt} Spoon approx 1 teaspoon of Nutella into each mold. When complete. Top off each mold with melted chocolate. Again, cleaning up any excess melted chocolate. Return mold to refrigerator to set up. Approx 30 minutes.

4. Invert mold to remove truffles. Giving slight tap to counter if necessary to help release truffles.

5. To make sauce: place your raspberries into a small bowl, add sugar. Mash together with fork. Place raspberries through a small sieve until it’s a smooth sauce consistency. Drizzle sauce over truffles.

    The raspberry sauce just sent me over the edge!

    After making these, I would make another truffle. I am thinking cookies and cream??

    I would use it to bake with my four year old daughter. She prefers the baking to the eating of sweets (lucky girl!) and so Mommy usually ends up eating the results (not good for Mommy’s waistline. With this we could bake a big batch of little cakes, then freeze them and take out and decorate a few at a time. crayolaswap at hotmail dot com

    I’d use it to make something for my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meetings.

    These look so pretty! I’d definitely try your recipe to start, but I’d also offer my services to friends for cocktail parties- both appetizers and desserts : little homemade cheesecakes and chocolates would be the perfect product from this pan! I bet these would make lovely little sorbets as well. I love the size- helps to keep portions in check!

    I’ve been meaning to subscribe to your blog for some time now, as your subject is so dear to my heart. I spent several years in Rome and miss my time (e cibo splendido) there considerably. Thank you for sharing these pleasures with us!
