Nutella Truffles: World Nutella Day

Today is World Nutella Day, and here's an easy recipe for Nutella Truffles to celebrate. Nutella is a hazelnut-chocolate spread with the consistency of smooth peanut butter. FYI: Nutella has no artificial colors or preservatives. I think of nutella as goodness in a jar! Nutella is more than just a “chocolaty hazelnut spread,” it is a way of life.
