LC Chocolate Lingo Note
Let’s be clear about one thing. There is no such thing as white chocolate. White confection, yes. White chocolate, no. White confection—which is quite often mistakenly referred to as white chocolate—doesn’t actually contain any cocoa solids. Nope. None. It contains cocoa butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla. But not the essence of chocolate. Still, we find this truffles recipe to be quite irresistible.

*How To Toast And Skin Hazelnuts
- To toast the hazelnuts, scatter them on a rimmed baking sheet and slide them into a 350°F (175°C) oven until they appear golden brown under their papery skins, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the nuts to a plate to cool and then rub them vigorously in a clean kitchen towel to remove the loose skins.
Recipe Testers Reviews
Despite the fact that white chocolate can be rather tricky to work with, this truffles recipe worked exactly as written and came together very easily. The end result was delicious but quite sweet. I gave the truffles as gifts and received some rave reviews. I used a small scoop and had no problem shaping them and rolling them in the hazelnuts. I didn't have any Frangelico so I just used a small amount of vanilla instead. I'm sure that with the addition of Frangelico they'd be even better.
