I love an easy recipe, and my friend, I have an easy recipe for you! I never knew how to make truffles but now that I know, everyone is getting these Ghirardelli chocolate truffles this year for Christmas!
We have this tradition where my sisters and I get together every year to make fun treats for Christmas. This year in addition to my sugar cookie scrub, I am bringing this Ghirardelli chocolate truffle recipe! My sisters and I love it! So, it will be my sisters, Nancy and Holly, my niece, Macy, and my baby girl, Gigi! I am particularly excited this year because Gigi is getting older and is a lot more fun to bake and make with! In other words, you’ll notice her little hands in every food blog pic that I have because she always had to “twy it”!
This sweet tradition gets better and better every year. I’m so excited to be bringing this super easy and delicious truffle recipe to the table this year. Do you have family traditions that gets better every year?
