I made these in three flavors: grand marnier, peppermint and just plain chocolate. Rolled the peppermint truffles in Hershey’s Candy Cane kisses that I chopped fine, the grand marnier truffles got chocolate dipped and the plain got rolled in cocoa powder with a dollup of chocolate on top. Gorgeous! I’ve listed some other ideas for mix-ins and toppings – but I’d love to hear your thoughts too! The possibilities are endless!
