I’ve been obsessed with truffles this holiday season.
I can’t help it. They are beautiful. Delicious. And easy to eat! Plus, there are so many flavor possibilities!
These almond truffles are one of my absolute favorites. The rich chocolate almond center, surrounded by crunchy almonds then dipped for a crunchy white chocolate coating…yes please!
