These no bake Malteser and hazelnut white chocolate truffles are simple and quick to make.
This blog is no stranger to truffles. I love them and how easy they are to make. These white chocolate truffles are no exception. They are made with Maltesers, one of my absolute favourite chocolate sweets (candies).
In fact, Maltesers feature really heavily – not only are they in the coating and the truffle filling, there’s also a whole Malteser awaiting you in the middle.
If you don’t have access to Maltesers where you are (poor, poor you), I’ve been reliably informed that Whoppers or any other malt ball will work just as well.
That said, some feel there is a distinct difference between Maltesers and Whoppers. I don’t know as I’ve never eaten a Whopper but even if I had, I find it hard to believe they could be better than our little ol’ Maltesers. Just saying.
These are so good you might want to share them (or perhaps not?) as they would make great presents for friends or family.
- 50 g butter
- 65 g brown sugar
- 30 g hazelnuts
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- 145 g plain (all-purpose) flour
- 215 g condensed milk
- 30 g Maltesers (plus 12-14 extra whole Maltesers)
- 20 g Maltesers
- 10 g hazelnuts
- 35 g white chocolate
Blitz the hazelnuts and 30g Maltesers in a food processor until fine.
Beat the butter and sugar together until soft. Add the condensed milk, vanilla sugar, flour and the Malteser/hazelnut mixture and mix together until thoroughly combined.
Leave in the freezer for around 15 minutes until the dough is firm enough to handle. Take around a tablespoon of dough in your hand, flatten it slightly and place a whole Malteser inside. Cover up the Malteser and then roll the dough until it is a round ball. When all have been done, place back in the freezer for a further 10-15 minutes.
Remove from the freezer and roll the balls again to ensure they are nice and round.
Blitz all the coating ingredients together until fine and then pour into a bowl. Roll each ball in the coating until fully covered. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes and then store them in the fridge until ready to be eaten. Enjoy!
