30 Days of Handmade Christmas Gifts - Day 21

Hello!  I hope everyone is enjoying The Scrapoholic's 30 Days of Handmade Christmas Gifts. 


My project for today is homemade chocolate truffles.  I actually used two different recipes.  One is from The Pioneer Woman, a fellow Okie.  I've made her chocolate truffles with sea salt twice now with amazing results.  The other is from a local church's cookbook, but I'm guessing the recipe for Oreo Truffles is easily found on the internet.  Its a pretty easy recipe requiring only three ingredients.  My only advice is to buy plenty of the candy melts or almond bark, whichever you choose to dip your truffles in.  I followed the recipes and had to send my dear husband out for more at midnight!

A friend of mine came over and we actually made in excess of 300 of these delicious tidbits as favors for my niece's wedding Saturday.  They were a huge hit with the wedding guests.  They would be great packaged in a homemade take-out box.

I used an assortment of dark chocolate and milk chocolate candy melts for the outer shell. 

Thanks for looking.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Hope everyone has a great Monday!
