Nutella Truffles

So simple and so delicious! Takes a total of two and a half hours to make but two of those hours they're just sitting in the freezer so you're actually just working on them for 30 minutes

What you need: 
One jar of Nutella
50g Hazelnuts
300g Chocolate

How you make them: 
Start with the filing:
Step1: Cover the insides of a small container with baking paper. Try finding a container that resembles a square or rectangle. 
Step2: Pour nutella into the container.
Step3: Use a knife to mark the surface and draw 1.5cm wide squares on top.
Step4: Put a hazelnut in the middle of every square and push it in to the nutella so that it sticks.
Step5: Put it in the freezer for about 2 hours.

20 minutes before you take out your nutella squares:
Step6: Start to temper your chocolate. (If you don't know how to do that click here).

Step7: Take the now frozen nutella out of the container, take of the baking paper and cut the nutella into small squares (each one with a hazelnut on top) with a knife dipped in hot water.
Step8: Put a drying rack on top of a large bowl and then put the cubes on top of the drying rack. Pour the tempered chocolate on top of them. I wanted them to look a little messy, think it looks kind of charming in a way but you can also dip every cube into the tempered chocolate, tap the fork that you dip them with on the side of the bowl to get rid of any excess and then place it on a piece of baking paper.
Step9: Put them in the fridge until you serve them.
