So Sweet: Nutella Peanut Butter Truffles

We served these at New Year's Eve, but of course you can also make them for whatever occasion you want, like Valentines Day. Just use other decoration that Christmas sprinkles :) Of course not very healthy, but they taste so good! In the Netherlands they sell these balls called Ferrero Rocher, and I loved those luxury chocolates as a child. These taste a bit similar. The original recipe comes from Pretty Simple Sweet.

Nutella Peanut Butter Truffles (makes 20-30 truffles, depending on how large you roll them)
- 40 gr butter, melted
- 2 tbsp powdered sugar
- 0.5 cups + 3tbsp Nutella
- 0.5 cup peanut butter
- 2 cups vanilla wafers, crushed (crush first, then measure)
- 2-3 tbsp milk

In a large bowl, combine melted butter and powdered sugar until smooth. Add peanut butter and Nutella and mix well. Then add the crumbled wafers and mix again. Lastly add 2 to 3 tbsp of milk, until the mixture is no longer crumble and can be rolled into balls easily. Let the mixture rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Or make up ahead until this point, until you have time to roll them.

Shape balls from the mixture. I used a tablespoon to scoop a heaping spoon out and rolled that into a ball. This can be a bit messy. But that is part of making truffles. Roll each ball into a topping of choice. Leave the balls in the fridge for at least one hour. Keep them there until serving. You can store them in an air tight container for a week.
