    I love Ferrero Rocher Truffles! Never realized it was so easy to duplicate the taste. I’m soooo glad you shared your recipe … even if my hips don’t LOL!

    How awesome are these! I used to have a prof in college who went around during all our exams handing us these trufles. It was hilarious but it’s a great memory. Love these truffles!

    I loved ferrero rocher so much as a kid! I guess now that i`m older (only 21, but still older), they do taste kind of too sweet for me. But, these look super cool to make!

    Hazelnuts are produced in commercial quantities in Turkey, Italy, Greece, Georgia, in south of the Spanish region of Catalonia, in the UK county of Kent and in the American states of Oregon and Washington. Turkey is the largest producer of hazelnuts in the world with approximately 75% of worldwide production.,

    I have been wondering how to make my own Ferrero Rocher truffles and you have just answered my question! Until now I have just resorted to dipping into the Nutella jar with my spoon πŸ™‚

    i had a very difficult time with the coating step. It turned out extremely viscous, making it impossible to achieve a uniform coating. Not sure what I did wrong? I’m sure they will taste great nonetheless! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

    I’m in the middle of making these as I am writing this! Very excited. Went to the store about half an hour ago and had no idea of the quantity of each ingredient that was needed. So I bought two of everything (except nutella and oil of corse) and then when I got home and pulled up the website I realised it said that this recipe could make 100 rochers. So I’ve halved it, and of corse bought far to much ingredients.

    Anywho, i’ll be back on later to let you know how they turned out :)!

      I do that all the time, I’m sure you’ll find another use for all those extra ingredients! Hope you enjoy the truffles πŸ™‚

    How many cans of wafers would you need for 3 cups?

    Hi what can you substitute for the wafers in the uk? Thanks!

    Thanks for this. I have 3 huge jars of Nutella at home (given to me, my sister-in-law and mom as gifts) and I’ve been looking for recipes to use them all up with.

    So I’ve been thinking… Would it be a lot easier to roll the truffles in the finely chopped hazelnuts, freeze them, AND THEN dip them in the chocolate?

    Hi can I make my own healthier chocolate chip cookies and crush them and add a tad bit more (homemade) Nutella to make up for the hazelnut wafer flavor n still get the same taste?

      I have no clue, I’ve never tried that. Let us know how it goes if you give it a shot!

    You mentioned homemade nutella. Do you have a recipe for that? Can’t wait to add these to my xmas candy boxes. Thanks for sharing. Warmly, Raz

    The measurements for this recipe are way off and this is a very expensive recipe as you need more than four cups of hazelnuts which aren’t cheap! The first step with making the balls there isn’t enough Nutella to have the balls stick together nicely. Should be more like 1 and a half cups of Nutella. Then you’re supposed to dip the balls in 1 cup of melted chocolate and 1 and 1/2 cups of hazelnuts? I used two cups of chocolate chips and this still wasn’t enough to cover all of the balls. I’m not sure if the person ever made this recipe before posting
