Wow! A roaring fire and the oven going for an hour sure gets my little house warm! I’ve been busy all morning making treats to gift.
First up: Dark Chocolate Coconut Fudge Truffles
Then I brewed a pot of java and stayed with that theme for some Mocha Truffles!
These are my all time fav! I’m not that good at writing down exact ingredients when I experiment so they come out a little different every time; always delish though 😉
And for a new concoction, how ’bout Gingersnap Truffles?!
These have great flavor but I’ve decided I really don’t like dealing with pecans even though they taste so good. They’re just really greasy and made it tough to make these hold together.
After all that I made a Chocolate Cobbler with Dark Chocolate Kahlua sauce to take to a Christmas party tonight.
This is just step #1 of the dessert. The end result doesn’t look very pretty- let’s hope it tastes good! I hate making anything for other people that I can’t taste first, just in case. Well, I know the sauce will be a hit 🙂 Now for some major kitchen clean-up!
I’m really happy to say that I’ve got all my Christmas shopping done! Now I just have to contain my excitement and wait till the 25th to watch them be opened (that’s my favorite part). I really love giving gifts, I wish I had a bigger budget and could give people gifts all the time! I also think that spending time with the people you love can be a far more meaningful gift than any object- it’s still fun though ;-).
Do you exchange gifts? If so, do you enjoy or dred holiday shopping?
