Nutella cake truffles

Nutella cake truffles
Bonbons, I often think they look great, but I don't always like the inside. You can argue about taste, right? For example, I am not a fan of whipped cream truffles; I like them, but give me a ganache filling or a filling with cake. Yes, an ordinary, cheap cake from the supermarket. I often find it unbelievable that they can make this for that price. For once I don't look at the label, without glasses I can't look at the label properly anymore, so I have that excuse ready. These Nutella cake truffles are so easy; a no bake recipe with only 3 ingredients!

Truffles based on cake?

Personally, I don't think the name truffles is correct. When I think of truffles I think of a chocolate or whipped cream with butter filling, but these truffles are simply called that online and so I play along. Actually, they are luxury cake pops without a stick or is it the other way around and cake pops are truffles with a stick. Pffff, we're not going to be philosophical today, but we're going to tinker with edible ingredients.

An easy recipe, ready in no time, handy for cake or Nutella leftovers and great fun to make with the kids.
Mix the cake from the supermarket with the Nutella in a mixer or mash it together with a mould

Requirements for about 12-14 pieces

Make Nutella truffles with cake

  1. Make the cake a little finer and grind it with the tablespoons of Nutella in the mixer to a mass. The Nutella was a leftover. You probably know that: a new jar of Nutella is a favorite in the house; until the jar ages, thickens slightly and starts to look less tasty. This recipe is great for that. Don't have a heavy duty food processor?

  2. Cut the cake into pieces and mash the cake with a fork and stir in the Nutella. Since the cake is at room temperature, this goes pretty well.

  3. Make balls of the filling and let them cool in the fridge for at least an hour. Then the truffles will become firm and the chocolate will harden faster.

  4. Melt the chocolate au bain marie. Would you like firm chocolate with a snap when you bite into it? Temper the chocolate in the way you in the link< /u>. Without this method also works, but the chocolate is slightly softer and more likely to stick to your hands.

  5. Dip the balls one by one with a fork in the melted chocolate, let the excess chocolate fall back into the bowl as much as possible through the fork and let them cool.You now have a little bit of chocolate left. Heat the chocolate slightly, because it is getting firmer. Draw stripes over your truffles with a small spoon full of chocolate and let them cool.

  6. They are delicious! You can hand out these Nutella cake truffles very well at home, at work or at school.

Don't add too much Nutella to the mix, the magic word is taste. Too much can also mean too sweet. Start with little and add.
