Then my coworker and I got a little fancier and made these peanut butter trffles. The dipping action is much more difficult than the rolling method. Several hours were wasted attempting to make the chocolate runny enough (add oil) and developing a system to prick the truffle and then leave no hole when removing the pricking device. Excellent though. Well worth the effort. I will add this into my normal holiday (and non-holiday) dessert line up.

I had often wondered about making truffles and had thought about making them for a Christmas gift for my grandma. I was talking to a coworker about it and we decided to try it out. We researched different methods for a few weeks and rounded up all the ingredients. First, we made these basic milk chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder and powdered sugar. They taste good.
I had the pleasure of being a briesmaid in my best friend’s wedding last week. I got to hold a beautiful bouquet filled with wonderful fall colors. Now those flowers have been sitting in my kitchen all week reminding me of my friend and the wonderful wedding we had last weekend as well as the great adventure she is about to take as a wife and step-mother. And at $60 a bouquet these are the most exspensive set of flowers I have used for this goal.
