Chocolate Peppermint Truffles
Chocolate-peppermint desserts have a special place on any holiday menu, and these little truffles pack in plenty of peppermint crunch around a center of creamy, smooth chocolate ganache.
Yes, making these truffles takes a little time, but if you set aside a few hours and get melting, chilling, shaping, and rolling, you’ll soon be deliciously rewarded.
Rich and decadent, a small box of truffles makes a wonderful and tasty gift, or adds an elegant touch to any holiday dessert tray. If you can’t find any candy canes, circular peppermint candies may be substituted instead.
