Beautiful Christmas Truffles {{Easy}}

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.  

Featured on Women Living Well.

Heat cream and butter on medium high heat  while stirring. Do this until until slightly boiling. Let simmer for 2 mins.

Remove pan from heat and add vanilla, candy bars and semisweet chocolate.

Stir until smooth. Then, place plastic wrap on top and refrigerate 4 hours or over night.

The chocolate hardens, but is still soft because of the butter and cream.

Roll about a tsp of chocolate into a ball with your hands. Then, roll again in chopped almonds.


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.

Here they are on a cookie tray..YUM! These are always the first ones gone, lol! (and they are the easiest to make- go figure!)

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.

  1. I love your gift wrapping ideas so much! What a special package to receive! The truffles also look delicious! 🙂
    Blessings,

  2. These look beautiful! I make goodies for my husband’s clients, as well.
    Do they have to be refrigerated?
    How long will they stay fresh in the mail
    Do they need to be sealed with plastic wrap to mail?

    Thanks!

    • Hi Julie! I would not suggest mailing these. I would suggest refrigerating them if you aren’t going to eat them the day of..these will last up to 2 weeks if refrigerated 🙂

  3. Yay! I’ve been looking for a few more recipes to add to the cookie trays for my husband’s clients too! Love your boxes! So pretty.

  4. I am so gonna try these! Love truffles..posted some today on my page too!

  5. Oh my, can I come over and we make them together? Even though I live a long distance from you….

    I want to make those so bad, scared. Yours are beautiful!

  6. Janelle's hubby says:

    These are soooooo good…..I did not want to give them to clients and keep them at home for us…..I would give these 10 stars if I could!

  7. oh these look so good! I’m making these for some of my teachers for the holidays but instead of rolling them in almonds I’m rolling them in crushed candy cane. yum!
