*These truffles are one of the more versatile Christmas candy recipes. You may roll truffles in coconut, sprinkles, powdered sugar or dip in melted white, dark or milk chocolate.
These candy truffles are a little bit softer than some of the popular store-bought truffles. If you would like a harder outer layer, you can make the truffles, add your favorite variations and then dip in melted chocolate candy coating. Then set them aside on wax paper to let the outer layer harden.
