Salted Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Caramel Truffles Recipe




    Ingredients :

  • 1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ⅔ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse sea salt (such as Diamond Crystal®)
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag chocolate chips (at least 60% cocoa), finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt (such as Diamond Crystal®), or to taste
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Heat hazelnut spread in metal bowl over saucepan of gently simmering water and stir until hazelnut spread is warm, smooth, and easily stirred, about 5 minutes. Remove bowl from heat.

  • Step 2

    Dissolve sugar in water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Brush sides of pan with a moistened pastry brush occasionally as sugar mixture cooks. Increase heat to medium-high and bring syrup to a boil and cook until syrup is a deep amber color, brushing down sides and swirling saucepan occasionally to prevent scorching, about 4 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Pour cream into the syrup while stirring. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring continually, until you have a smooth caramel, 5 to 10 minutes; gently stir into the melted hazelnut spread with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt.

  • Step 4

    Refrigerate caramel mixture until firm, at least 3 hours.

  • Step 5

    Spread cocoa powder into the bottom of a wide, shallow bowl.

  • Step 6

    Scoop caramel mixture with a melon baller into 1 tablespoon portions; roll in the cocoa powder to coat; arrange onto a baking sheet.

  • Step 7

    Cover truffle balls with plastic wrap and chill overnight or 8 hours.

  • Step 8

    Line a 13x9x2-inch baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Step 9

    Heat chopped chocolate in a metal bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water, stirring frequently until chocolate is melted and smooth and the chocolate reaches a temperature of 115 degrees F (46 degrees c). Remove bowl from over water.

  • Step 10

    Working quickly, submerge each truffle ball in the melted chocolate. Lift truffles from chocolate with a fork and tap fork against side of bowl to remove excess coating. Transfer truffle to foil-lined pan to cool. Repeat with remaining truffle balls.

  • Step 11

    Sprinkle finished truffles lightly with 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt before the chocolate hardens. Let stand until coating sets completely, at least 1 hour.
