Christmas Truffles

PicMonkey CollageI picked up some Martha Stewart gift boxes on sale earlier this year and decided they would be perfect for packaging truffles for family members.

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).
