IMG_3662Long before Costco super sized nutella children in Europe have been eating this hazelnut delight! Now that this popular Italian spread is widely available in the USA delightful treats have become part of the pop culture.  In keeping with this nu trend I made a delicious Kellog’s treat that normally has peanut butter and I substituted nutella.  

They are “Nutella Krispy Crunch Balls”. They taste like a nutella Nestle crunch.

NOTE: I used a cup of powdered sugar in this batch but I do think less sugar could be used.  I would start out with 1/3 less next time and see how that works.


Form balls and place on lined baking sheet


Dip each ball into melted chocolate and return to baking sheet


Leave them plain or decorate them with sprinkles, etc..


The inside is krispy and chocolaty

 Put them inside of mini candy cups or make them larger as nutella Krispy crunch pops! 


Great for birthdays or special events by themselves or on a sweet/candy buffet…
