Chocolate Truffles ~ 7 Days of Memory Making ~ Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of my 7 Days of Memory Making ~ Holiday Recipe Series

I am taking a MUCH NEEDED break from my usual blogging routine this week in preparation for prepare for our long distance move.   But don’t worry, this blog will not be abandoned.I have teamed up with the FABULOUS Danelle from Let’s Dish Recipes to bring you some really great recipes this week.

7 days of memory making, holiday recipe series
For me- the holidays are just not the same without Chocolate Truffles.  They are so decedent & rich- I can’t get enough.  For years I wanted to make some.  I always thought they would be too time consuming or difficult.  Then I came across a recipe similar to this one & realized that these were something I could easily put together.  I tweaked the recipe to fit my tastes & here you go.  I love this Chocolate Truffle recipe because it’s so simple & so quick – which makes them a must in my book.  They give the appearance that I spent a ton of time slaving away in the kitchen but that is just not the case.  These won’t last long- I promise.
