These tasty Nutella Krispy Crunch Balls are made with Rice Krispies, butter, and confectioners sugar. This tasty, quick treat is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.  




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…

Rice Crispy with Nutella

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
  • 1 Olive oil


  • Combine, melted butter, nutella and confectionary sugar into a bowl and mix until it has a thick, smooth consistency. Almost like frosting.
  • Then add the Rice Krispies Cereal and fold into the nutella mixture with a rubber spatula.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment/wax paper.
  • Using a very small cookie scooper (or tablespoon) roll out as many nutella balls that will fit on the baking sheet.
  • When the sheet pan is full, place it in the freezer for 15 minutes or until firm.
  • While nutella crunch balls are in the freezer, melt your chocolate.
    Note: my preference is to place the chocolate melts into a tall mug, in 30 second intervals at 1/2 power.
  • Remove the Nutella balls from the freezer and dip into the chocolate. Shake off excess and glide back onto the parchment lined sheet pan. Once your pan is full, return it to the freezer for another 10 minutes (or until hard enough to handle).
  • Place the nutella balls into mini paper candy cups.
    Or before putting them into the cups, lightly drizzle them with chocolate and then decorate with crystalized sugar or other sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to harden and sprinkles to set before transferring to cups.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve!


Try using peanut butter as in original recipe
Store in a cool area or keep in the fridge.
Sugar: Try using a 1/3 less sugar to make less sweet
