A box of chocolates just screams the holiday season to me. I never did the–take a bite and put it back–thing, probably because my bite was as big as the chocolate. But I would always go for the truffles first. I don’t know what I found so intriguing about the soft and silky centers, but they were (and still are) my favorite.
These little treats are perhaps the best holiday treats I’ve made.
Roll in candy canes the day you plan to serve them. Or else the candy layer will get sticky from absorbing the moisture in the chocolate.
