I have started referring to this week as “Birthday Extravaganza Week” because most of my favorite friends have birthdays right in a row. Seriously, five friends in five days. In honor of my favorite girls, I wanted to whip up a celebratory treat and to me nothing says “let’s celebrate!” like chocolates in pretty boxes.
I used my old “Luscious Truffles” recipe and switched out the corn syrup for honey and the peppermint and orange zest for espresso powder and raspberry extract. Yummy. I have been hoarding saving some small empty jewelry boxes, knowing that someday I would find some use for them and I finally did: they are perfect for truffles.
Double-stick tape was all it took to adhere pretty, coordinating paper to the lids. Mod Podge would have worked well too, I just didn’t want to wait long enough for it to dry. I lined the newly pretty boxes with parchment, filled with the truffles, and tied with twine. Cute and easy.
That’s all, folks.
