Easiest Ever Holiday Truffles and Nambe Giveaway

This month I feel like Oprah with all these fabulous giveaways! Granted I’m not giving away a car, or ten cars, but I am giving away some of my very, VERY favorite things!

Including this gorgeous Nambe Infinity 2pc Server!

Nambe was kind enough to send me one of these to review! This gorgeous serving bowl set has a permanent place as the centerpiece on my dining room table.

With all the treats I make, it’s always full! And it always gets attention! Photos just don’t do this set of bowls justice! You can keep them separated like in the above photo…filling them with treats or nuts, or even chips and dip.

Or you can combine them to make one beautiful serving piece! And especially for the holidays this would be perfect to fill with all your wonderful desserts.

Today I’m sharing my easy truffle recipe.

Want to know what makes them so easy? Melted chocolate with Cool Whip. Mixed together. That’s it. Roll them in some toffee bits or crushed peppermint candy canes and dip in melted chocolate again. Voila. EASY Truffles. Which way do you prefer?

Peppermint?

Or Toffee?

I also made some of my favorite English Toffee…that recipe is coming tomorrow!

In the meantime, print out the truffle recipe (oh, did I mention you can make these today and freeze them until Christmas?).

Then enter the rafflecopter giveaway below! Be sure to check out all the other wonderful products from Nambe! These would not only make wonderful additions to your own home, but they would be perfect for a fun, unique gift for a new bride too! They have a gorgeous Nativity set that is on my wish list! (hint hint dear hubby)

What  will you be putting in this server set if you win? Here are a few of my favorites ideas….

 Peppermint Fudge   and   Root Beer Float Fudge

How about some salty snacks? 

Dill and Ranch Oyster Crackers  and Taco Snack Mix

Finally, I know you all love Dip, right? 

Jalapeno Corn Dipserve with tortilla chips AND Oreo Nutella PB Dip- serve with grahams (or a spoon)

Easiest Ever Holiday Truffles and Nambe Giveaway

Ingredients

  • 2 pkgs (11oz each) milk chocolate morsels
  • 8oz tub Cool Whip, thawed
  • 3/4 cup peppermint candy, crushed
  • 3/4 cup toffee bits
  • 16 oz vanilla candy coating, melted
  • 16 oz chocolate candy coating, melted

Instructions

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips for one minute. Stir and microwave another 30 seconds. Stir again until smooth. Allow to sit and cool to room temperature (about 20 minutes).
  2. Line a freezer-safe baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Fold Cool Whip into room temperature chocolate. Drop by tablespoon onto lined baking sheet (it's okay if they aren't balls yet). Freeze for one hour.
  4. Shape into a ball and roll in either peppermint or toffee bits. Return to parchment paper and repeat until all balls are formed. Return to freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. Using a toothpick, dip each peppermint ball into melted vanilla candy coating. Place on parchment paper and sprinkle with some of the remaining peppermint bits. Repeat for all peppermint balls.
  6. Using a toothpick, dip each toffee ball into melted chocolate candy coating. Place on parchment paper and sprinkle with remaining toffee bits. Repeat until all toffee balls have been dipped.
  7. Store in freezer until ready to serve!
  8. ENJOY!

Comments & Reviews

  1. I’ve always wanted the Nambe kissing salt and pepper shakers. I asked for them as a wedding present, about 14 years ago, and still haven’t received them!

  2. Oooh – I have such a soft spot for cupcake and cake stands – which can be used for a whole lot more than just sweet things, of course! I love the Anvil 2-Tier Server – I think it would add such depth to a spread, and make the yumminess look all that much more yummy!

  3. Yay! I think I’m going to pick a few of my favourite recipes of yours, and make delicious Christmas hampers as a little something extra special for Christmas this year. Thanks for keeping my salivating on a daily basis!

  4. I would put lots of pumpkin fudge in it. I am addicted!! I am so glad that you said to stock up on the jello pudding mix so it is no longer available.

  5. Also, to answer your question, I’ve been eyeing pretty much all of your fudge recipes. since the dishes have four compartments …

  6. I wanted to thank you for making the recipes so easy to print out. It’s much easier than copying and trying to reformat it into a word document.

  7. I can’t pick a favorite! I love the Morphik Two-Tier Server, Rocks Cake Plate With Server, 12 piece Nativity, Sleigh with Reindeer and many others.

  8. http://www.nambe.com/namb/ctl10101/cp59115/si5993515/cl1/monroe_salt_shaker__pepper_grinder

    I like the salt shaker and pepper grinder

  9. I am so shocked that I haven’t heard of this company – I love their pieces! The one you have up for grabs is gorgeous, so if I win it…the other item I would choose is the Butterfly bowl – it’s very functional and would have many many uses.

  10. OH, the possibilities are endless….I would love, love, love this serving piece. Your sweets look yummy. Toffee is on of my favorites too.

  11. Wow, such pretty stuff! I love the copper oval platter–gorgeous! And your truffles! While I do love toffee, I have to admit I’m always partial to anything peppermint! 🙂

  12. The Butterfly Bakers and Butterfly Covered Casseroles are stunning. Almost too pretty to use.

    And I *love* the Infinity Server.

  13. I really love the infinity salad bowl…might make me eat more salad if it was served so pretty:-) And your truffle recipe is the same thing I top my milky way brownie bites with…I had no idea I could freeze it and dip it too…awesome idea:-)

  14. I really loved Nambe especially their holiday selection. I had a hard time choosing exactly what was my favorite but I believe the stocking hangers are. The nativity scene was a very close second.

  15. Well, this was for sure some very unusual pieces. I really like the one you are giving away. I did like most of the glass pieces too. I have never heard of this brand.

    Thanks!!!

  16. How do I pick just one thing from Nambe??? Oh my gosh! I love the serving piece you have up for grabs…I love the countertop canisters…I love the Holiday ornaments…I love everything! 🙂

  17. I love all things Nambe – and this infinity server would be a great addition to our collection. I can’t wait to make your toffee truffles, yum!

  18. right now, i could use a truffle in my life! and cool whip in the truffle? who knew!! I am completely intrigued. And that nambe server – i could use a little gadget like that. I need a server for my little candied nuts and chocolate pretzels. 🙂

  19. I am in loooove with the Anvil 2-tier server. Gorgeous! And these truffles. Aimee you’re amazing. I just got some GOOD ideas from the recipe. 🙂

  20. How do I pick just one?
    If I have to, I would pick the Heritage Nativity Scene. I love nativity scenes and this one is so elegant!

  21. I’m loving the Copper Canyon Vase! Your truffles look so delicious and I like this easy recipe.
    Thanks for sharing <3, chocolate and peppermint!

  22. Everything is beautiful, bit since I collect cake stands I would say the Copper Canyon Cake Stand. Just stunning.
    I will be making your truffles this weekend. They sound delicious.
    Donna

  23. Truffles are a must on out Christmas dessert table and love how easy yours are to make.
    Would love if you bring them to my December Chocolate Party
