Truffles are in most cases, a no-bake sweet confection that is enjoyed by many at Christmastime. Even though they are good anytime, it seems that they are prepared in many homes around the holidays. They are easy to prepare and very little skill is needed to make a beautiful treat!
ANOTHER CHRISTMAS SERIES
Just a short while ago, I published a truffle series to the blog. The series was called Lord Byron’s 12 Truffles of Christmas. It was a series that was posted over 12 consecutive days. Just like I have done in the past with other Christmas recipe series, I am putting together one post with all of the recipes from the series on one page.
I’m not sure why I do these things to myself or how I get it into my head that a consecutive series is a good idea. As much as I do love it when I think of it, the keeping up with the social media aspect of a series like that is quite overwhelming.
WHAT ARE TRUFFLES?
Without boring you to tears, it’s rather really simple. Even though some will argue that a truffle must consist of two things – chocolate and cream – I disagree. I think a truffle can be anything you like as long as it is rolled into a ball and either dipped in melted chocolate or rolled into something like coconut, graham crumbs or even cocoa.
The great thing about truffles is that they are no-bake. That means that anyone can make them! They’re great for those younger home-cooks who are just learning their way around a kitchen. They can make delicious treats without having to turn on the oven. Truffles are certainly a well-loved treat, so in most cases, they are well received too!
I’m very proud of this 12 Christmas Truffle series, so I’m placing all of them together in this one post. This way, it will be easier for you to maneuver your way through the series. Also, you can see all of the recipes here on one page and better see which one(s) jump out at you. Let’s get started!
MORE CHRISTMAS CONFECTIONS!
Last year, I published a series called Lord Byron’s 12 Biscotti of Christmas. The year before that, I published a series called Lord Byron’s 12 Bundt Cakes of Christmas. You can click on the image below and see the entire series on one page! Don’t worry, you won’t lose this page. It will open up a new page so that you can easily get back to these truffles!

Before long, Christmas will be here and I totally plan to take a day or two and do nothing but relax. I have baked so much over the past couple of months! I think a good break is long overdue. I’ll be back on January 1st with my Top 10 Recipes of 2021 post and lots of new, tasty recipes! And of course, sometime before the new year, I’ll publish my Annual Christmas Post as well. Every year, I document and photograph our annual Christmases. Take a look if you have time to waste!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, MY MOST LOYAL AND BELOVED DEAR READER!
If I don’t get the opportunity to do so later, I would like to take a moment to wish you and your loved ones the most wonderfully happy and joyful Christmas, and a most prosperous New Year! I hope that 2022 is your best year yet! XOXO
