How to Make Crispy Nutella Truffles
Making these Nutella Truffles couldn’t be easier. They are great to make when during the warmer months when you just don’t want to turn on the oven.
First, in a large stir together the melted butter, Nutella, and peanut butter until smooth.
Then, add in the powdered sugar and Rice Krispies and stir until well combined. Because you want these crispy, be sure not to overstir the batter and break the Rice Krispies.
Next, using a cookie scoop to measure, roll the mixture into about 40 evenly sized balls using damp hands so the mixture doesn’t stick. I like to have a small bowl of water nearby to dip my fingers into between truffles.
To get even-sized truffles, use a cookie scoop like this $5 Wilton Stainless Steel Cookie Scoop on Amazon. Then, put the truffles in the refrigerator or freezer for 15 minutes while you prepare the chocolate dip.
Topping the Nutella Truffles
Crispy Nutella Truffles are delicious as is, or to make them even more special by topping them off with a melted chocolate and sprinkles.
In a shallow bowl, microwave the chocolate chips at fifty percent stopping to stir every thirty minutes until completely melted. Then you can either drizzle the chocolate over the truffles or dip the tops of them the melted chocolate. Top with sprinkles if desired.
For a true truffle you would dip the entire ball in chocolate coating. However, this recipe is plenty sweet and I think a drizzle gives it a nice effect. Personally I like to just use a fork dipped in the melted chocolate to drizzle on the chocolate. Easy and less mess!
Finally, you could add whatever sprinkles or decorations on top that you would like or leave them as is.

Just made these & whilst they are a treat we found them too sweet for us. Is it possible to reduce or omit the powdered sugar?
I am also wondering if the powdered sugar is necessary. Can it be omitted all together?
The powdered sugar helps to bind the ingredients together. You can try reducing the amount of sugar by half and hopefully that will be enough for it to hold.
