Chocolate Strawberry Truffles with Hoosier Homemade {Guest Post}

Would you believe it if I told you that I’ve never been attended a real cookie swap?  Sad, I know.

When I got the invite for a virtual swap I jumped at the chance to attend!  Today I’ll be sharing my creation over at Roxanna’s Home Baking, while my friend Liz, of Hoosier Homemade keeps y’all company here.

Since I pretty much stink at any sweets that aren’t cookies I was super excited she brought truffles.  Enjoy!

Blog breakWell hello there Sugarbelle friends! I’m Liz from Hoosier Homemade and I’m honored to be here today for the Christmas Cookie Swap with you all!

The decorated cookies and amazing talent of Sugarbelle have had me in awe for many years. I could spend hours looking at all of her cookies! Most recently, I have had Christmas Cookies on my mind. While I don’t decorate cookies, I do share lots of recipes for baking on Hoosier Homemade.

As well as simple craft and DIY projects, organizing tips, parties and more – all to help you be a hero to your family! And if you are in need of a delicious recipe to serve to your family and friends, we have you covered over at Pocket Change Gourmet.

When I attend a cookie swap, not only do I love to take home cookies, but I also love the candy and other treats that are shared. Today I am sharing these easy Chocolate Strawberry Truffles.

Chocolate Strawberry Truffles Recipe

One of my favorite flavor combinations is chocolate and strawberries! I love making Gourmet Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, they look so impressive on your dessert table, but are super easy to make.

These Chocolate Strawberry Truffles are equally impressive looking, but with just a few ingredients, you can have them ready in a snap!

The centers of the truffles are soft and creamy, and the addition of chopped of almonds gives them a little crunch. You could also roll them in powdered sugar for a different flavor.
