No one will be able to resist the indulgent blend of dark chocolate, hazelnut and caramel with a dash of salt in these truffle balls. They can be made up to a week before you need them, just cover them well and keep in the fridge. Bring to room temperature before serving.
When shaping the truffle filling, try to avoid touching it as much as you can. I use a melon baller to do the majority of the shaping because the moment you touch it, it starts to melt. If the mix gets too soft, let it chill in the freezer for 45 minutes to 1 hour before continuing.
I've never made truffles and these came out amazing! It took a bit of work and the trickiest part was the caramel but that's just becasue I don't know how to make caramel... Everyone thought they were great, and very pretty, so I will use this recipe again if I need a classy dessert. - 11 Mar 2016 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
