Megans Cookin: Chocolate Peppermint Truffle

Chocolate Peppermint Truffle


I'm wrapping up this truffle series with the peppermint truffle.


Two trys later and I'm happy with it.





Chocolate Peppermint Truffles
The first try: I thought I would be clever and buy those green mint chips. Add butter and cream and let set up. Well, these ugly green blogs didn't set up. Not even over night in the freezer. And the color! I couldnt get pass that green.
So, I dumped out all the blobs and started over with semi-sweet chocolate. Added my butter and cream, a little peppermint extract and everybody was dancing the happy dance.

Much better.
What was I thinking?
No more green chips for me!

I got all my little boxes in a row.

They didnt hold as many as I would of liked them to.

But all in all, I think my Truffles are pretty and they are a labor of love.
Which goes hand in hand with Christmas.
Merry Christmas!

Such a great idea for gifts. This year, I gave out brownies cut with cookie cutters. Maybe next year, I'll try truffles :)
