Chocolate Truffles — The Weekender

Chocolate Truffles - The WeekenderNearly every year, I make at least half a dozen varieties of holiday cookies to share with friends, neighbors and relatives. I have a few standbys (sugar, gingerbread, chocolate crinkles) and a few wild card slots (this year, they are thumbprints, almond flour shortbread, and oat cookies with cranberries and pistachios).

In addition to those cookies, I also try to include one extra sweet in my holiday treat assortment. In the past I’ve made oven-roasted caramel corn, easy fudge with sweetened condensed milk and crunchy pepita toffee.

This year as I was scanning recipe websites, looking for that extra something sweet to put in my treat packages, I spotted Ina Garten’s recipe for Chocolate Truffles.
