Delicious, soft chocolate ball bites with whole hazelnuts in the middle and sprinkled hazelnuts on the outside are very easy to prepare. But it takes a little more time on paper, most of the time they are just chilling.

And once you taste them, I’m sure you’ll crave them again.

It is very important that you use quality chocolate, some type of dark chocolate, which you already like.

Don’t try to make balls in your hands without first rolling them in ground hazelnuts, as they will just melt under your fingers.

If the truffles are stored in the refrigerator, they will be more compact.

Easy Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

Cook Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Servings 22 truffles


  • 200 grams of dark chocolate
  • 1,5 dl of whipping cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • 150 grams of hazelnuts (50 grams of whole nuts, 100 grams of grounded hazelnuts)
  • Vanilla aroma


  • Put the whipping cream in a bowl and heat it up but just before boiling, remove and add the broken chocolate pieces and let it stand for a minute. Then stir well with a whisk to melt the chocolate and combine nicely into a silky cream. Also stir in a pinch of salt and little vanilla aroma then allow to cool. Then place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to harden well.
  • Grind 100 grams of hazelnuts into sandy consistency (or you can use already ground hazelnuts).
  • Then take a teaspoon of the chocolate ganache, push one whole hazelnut into it and close it on the spoon with your fingers. The chocolate melts quickly with a touch, so put it from a spoon on the ground hazelnuts, sprinkle the praline with ground hazelnuts and then shape it into a ball with your hands, roll it up and put it in a serving paper. Continue until the ingredients run out.
    If you store pralines in the refrigerator, they will be firmer.
