Truffle Box

I love looking at Kraftin Kimmie's blog. She makes really fun cute cards. It's her Birthday this week. Happy Birthday Kim! She's doing some challenges this week and one is to use pattern paper & hearts. So this little box fits.

CCT theme is Valentine's. I made this little truffle box for Valentine's Day. My sister makes the most delicious truffles & I'm going to give it a whirl. I used my nestabilities for the top & bottom of box. The sweet cupcake image is from magnolia. Sentiment is SU So Very & flourishes is SU noteworthy. Happy Valentines Day. Here's a truffle recipe

Easy Truffle Recipe:
18 oz Semi Sweet Chocolate
8oz cream cheese
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
nuts, cocoa, coconut or chocolate to dip them in
(flavoring such as mint, orange, cherry can be added)

melt chocolate set aside. Beat in softened cream cheese in separate bowl. Add Sugar. Add Vanilla. After all mixed add melted chocolate. Refrigerate 1 hour. Shape into balls. Roll in desired coating or dip in chocolate. Makes 5 dozen
