Almond Truffles with soft filling and chocolate shell are pure delight for your taste buds and you don’t need any special skills to make them.
Can you believe Christmas is here in 24 days? Oh my goodness! Where did the time go? The good news is, I started early this year and I have my first Christmas treat ready for you! These Almond Truffles are absolutely amazing and super easy to make, especially if you are a chocolate and nut lover like me and my daughter. I definitely have to make more, because this first batch is already gone! By the way, you can use different nuts as well, if you like. Or you can check my older recipe which is a little bit different and I do not have a video. Nevertheless, these HAZELNUT TRUFFLES are also easy to make and absolutely divine!
What is also great about truffles besides being mouthwatering, is that they make a lovely gift. All you need is cute little boxes like these from Amazon for example. There is nothing like a homemade vegan gift, wouldn’t you say? I am always for homemade gifts and vegan goes without saying. I am usually the one who gives the homemade gifts, although, I get vegan treats from my friends and family. I always love those, even if they are not homemade.
What type of gifts are your favorite? And do you make homemade gifts? Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you try this simple, yet delicious recipe. And if you have any questions or suggestions, I would love to hear from you. I wish you a wonderful Holiday Season!
