Instead of traditional ganache truffles, I got creative and made peppermint chocolate cake truffles and scotcharoo truffles. The first are basically cake pops with no sticks, but the second are an invention of my own. I made scotcharoo bars (rice crispies, sugar, corn syrup, and peanut butter) but rolled the mixture into balls instead of pressing it into a pan. I dipped each ball into the traditional scotcharoo bar topping: a mixture of melted chocolate and butterscotch chips.
Scotcharoo bars are really rich so this is a great way to enjoy just a bite. Christmas creativity always seems to come to me last minute (when I have free time to actually think about something other than school and work).
