Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles
Prep: 25 min. + chilling
* 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
* 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
* 4 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each)
* 6 tablespoons butter
* 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
* 24 whole hazelnuts
* 1 cup ground hazelnuts, toasted
In a large bowl, sift together confectioners’ sugar and cocoa; set aside. In a saucepan, melt candy bars and butter. Add the cream and reserved cocoa mixture.
Cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture is thickened and smooth. Pour into an 8-in. square dish.
