Fruit and Nut Truffles
Here is something a little bit healthier for Christmas. Ok Ok I know, Christmas is the perfect excuse to indulge, but I promise that these truffles still taste indulgent. They are also great on a platter among more decadent treats.
These truffles are also extremely easy to make. All that you need is a good food processor or stick blender to prepare the mixture for you. I don't think that they could have taken me any more than 15 minutes and I am going to put them into a gift box of treats.
