Every Christmas I have one major tradition that I can’t ignore: making chocolate truffles. Most years, I have a specific recipe that calls for Baileys or an amaretto liquor, but this year I verged off and tried something a little different, using Courvoisier Cognac instead. The result is one of the best batches of truffles I have ever made.
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love summer, I love Halloween, but Christmas, and the whole month leading up to it, offer up treats galore. From cooking the turkey for Christmas dinner, to making cookies, and yes, chocolate truffles, there’s no better time of year for me.
