Hi Cara, I want to make these this week for sure!!! But I'm curious about what quark is? (Something tells me I've heard of it before, but the ol' brain can't seem to recall where, or perhaps I'm just thinking of the computer application by the same name )

Hazelnut Truffles (for mrsmac)

1cup heavy cream
1 1/4 lb. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup Nutella
2 1/2 c roasted hazelnuts (about 11 oz)

Line an 8 x 8 in. pan with a piece of parchment pater, let paper extend over the edge.

Pour cream in a heavy saucepan and bring to a full boil over medium heat.

Remove from heat and slowly whisk in chopped chocolate and butter until melted.

Stir in Nutella.

Pour in prepared pan. Or to speed the process, transfer mixture to a large bowl, refrigerate, stirring every five minutes until cooled, but, not cold then pour into the prepared pan.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread hazelnuts on a rimmed baking sheet; toast until lightly browned and skins crack, about 5-7 minutes. While still warm, rub hazelnuts with a kitchen towel to remove as much skin as possible. Let cool, and chop very finely.

Remove truffle mixture from pan by carefully pulling up on the edges of the paper. Place on a large work surface.
Using a long, sharp knife dipped in hot water and dried, cut into 1 inch squares. Roll into a ball shape and press into hazelnuts. Place in candy papers and refrigerate. Serve at room temperature. Truffles may be stored in tight containers up to a week at a cool temperature.

ENJOY !!

I read the link to quark. Interesting stuff. And I thought a quark was a sub-atomic particle we talke about in physics class way back in the Universty days.

just about everything

growing up in europe my brother and i were spoiled when it came to being able to enjoy the better things in life, and to us boys Nutella, was close to the top. As a laugh mom will still grab a couple of jars for us and her grandkids when shes on base. didnt enjoy the vegamite nearly as much!

Nutella is part of my culture and I grew up with it (the scale is my testimonial ). I never tasted peanut butter before moving to Ireland (2 years ago) and to me it tastes fine (nothing too exciting nor dull) but I wouldn't use as much peanut butter as I use Nutella. Probably I am in the opposite position of the thread's starter.

Cheers,

Quark isn't cottage cheese (although I agree with your description!), it is a thick yogurt.

I've been eating Nutella for years, on bread, and I love it. Thanks for all the recipe ideas to try. Can't wait!
