What’s better than red velvet cake?  How about red velvet {cake} truffles you can just pop in your mouth?  Wouldn’t these look gorgeous on your holiday platters?  Great cookie exchange idea, too!

Today I have a special guest blogger on my page.  Please meet my youngest daughter, Josie!

My name is Josie and An Affair from the Heart is my mom’s website and this week I am guest posting! When I saw the talk about me guest posting on her instagram account I was SO excited! If you don’t know I also have a love of cooking. I love to do anything involving food!

I asked my mom about what I would have to do to guest post she said I would have to pick a recipe, make it , take pictures of it ,edit the pictures, and type up the blog post. I have seen my mom do all of these things before. I have even helped her with them but I had never done it all by myself!  I was excited and a little nervous. (But here I am doing it, right??? 🙂  )

So, I went on Pintrest and looked at recipes.  I found a recipe for red velvet truffles, and knew I HAD to make it! Not only because they looked DELICIOUS, but because  I think you could have a nice time making these truffles with your family for Christmas!

This recipe is very fun, and easy to make. A little secret though, one of the reasons I chose this recipe is that I got to use the sifter!                             I LOVE that thing!

I had made cake pops before and they turned out VERY messy. These truffles are similar but they don’t have a stick, and they aren’t messy!

    1. I haven’t tried it. I would think it would be fine? If you’re concerned about the almond bark, you could make the cake part, freeze them, and then defrost and dip them before you gift them?
