These are incredibly easy, yet elegant treats to make for the holidays. If you are not a baker -these are perfect. If you are a baker- add them to your cookie tray for a chocolaty treat. You are going to love these melt-in-your mouth beauties!
I made these very truffles for my husband’s clients.

Place in small paper cups. I purchased these ones from Jo-Ann fabrics, they were “Martha Stewart” brand in teal and a beautiful red color. I used teal here to match the colors of our business for gift giving to clients.
This is one of the boxes I used to package the truffles and cookies in for our clients- The box was purchased at Marcs for 99 cents, the ornament was also purchased at Marcs (50 cents) toile was purchased at Jo-Anns -whala! Fancy yet affordable! I like those qualities! lol.
Marcs did not have enough of those beautiful boxes, so I bought some additional paper boxes at Jo-ann’s – I purchased some paper doilies to make the window look more like a snowflake and added toile and a some flare (that is probably for a wreath?) but it looked elegant and again…was affordable.
