Long before Costco’s 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 pop culture. 

In keeping with this nu trend, I made a delicious Kellogg’s treat that normally has peanut butter, but I substituted Nutella.

These Nutella Krispy Crunch Balls taste just like Ferrero Rocher chocolate.

Melt the chocolate

Melt the chocolate

Combie butter, nutella, sugar and cereal

Combine butter, Nutella, sugar, and cereal

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 them on a 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 crispy 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…

Nutella Krispy Crunch Balls

Chocolate coated nutella and Rice Krispy balls


  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 3/4 cup Confectionary sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup Rice krispy cereal
  • 1 stick Unsalted butter melted
  • 12 oz Chocolate candy melts
  • 1 Sprinkles, crystalized sugar, non perils


  • Combine melted butter, Nutella, and confectioner's sugar in a bowl. Mix until thick and smooth. Fold in Rice Krispies cereal with a rubber spatula.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Using a small cookie scoop, roll the mixture into balls and place them on the baking sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes or until firm.
  • While the Nutella balls are freezing, melt the chocolate at half power in 30-second intervals.
  • Dip the frozen Nutella balls into the chocolate, shaking off any excess. Return them to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze for another 10 minutes or until hard enough to handle.
  • Place the Nutella balls into mini paper candy cups. Lightly drizzle them with chocolate and then decorate with sprinkles or crystallized sugar. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

What is the olive oil for? It’s listed in the ingredients but the recipe doesn’t say what to do with it. Thanks!

Hi Michelle! I'm sorry for the confusion. I'm not sure why that was on there but I took the Olive Oil off of the recipe card. Thanks for letting me know!
