Chocolate Doughnut Truffles
How to make Chocolate Doughnut Truffles
Tear or crumble the doughnutsinto penny-size pieces until you have about 3 and a 1/2 cups, letting them fall into a mixing bowl as you work. season with the 2 pinches of salt, then gently stir in the chocolate spread in tablespoon increments along with the 1/3 cup of nuts, being careful not to break up the doughnut pieces too much.
Divide the mixture into 9 or 10 equal portions and roll into compact balls. Return them to the bowl abd refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until somewhat firm.
Meanwhile, combine the chocolate and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on LOW in 20 second increments until melted, stiring after each one. Once the mixture is smooth, cool slightly. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set a wire cooling rack over it.
Working with one chilles doughnut ball at a time, dip the balls into the chocolate mixture to coat. While they are still wet, sprinkle each one with a few flakes of the sea salt and a few pieces of toasted hazelnut, if desired. Place on th ewire rack until completely set, then transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
