As the holidays approach, time seems to fly by and panic settles in as we try to finish all the errands that need to be completed. What the holidays really are about though, is family. Spending time with one another, giving and receiving from the people who love you most in the world. Whether it’s your drives-you-crazy siblings, your nagging mother, your sweet grandfather, or your 5th cousin who you haven’t seen in 8 years, holidays are a time to show the love you feel for one another. What better way to show someone you care than with candy…homemade candy at that?
In this busy time of year, these are easy and fun to make. Kids can help form the balls and decorate, creating a fun activity for the kiddos on break. And trust me – you’ll enjoy the benefits. These are minty, smooth, delicious, and absolutely gorgeous. Easy and impressive? Perfect for this time of year…or any time of year!
Grab the THREE ingredients (yes, only three) and take some time to spend time with your family and whip these together. If you’re in the giving mood, throw some in a pretty box and
deliver them to a neighbor, family member, or coworker. They’ll be grateful. Treasure this time of year, sing some carols, have a wonderful holiday season, and enjoy these truffles!Print
