You read that right, Butterfinger Truffles. This is going to be a new holiday tradition in my home. I never quite realized how easy truffles were to make until I made some last year with Naomi.
This year, she’s skipped out on making truffles with me, so left to my own devices. I made these—peanut butter flavored truffles rolled in crushed Butterfinger.
I’m not one to brag, but these were so good, I’ve set aside a few for myself and the others will be gifted to friends. Apparently it’s a candy making year, because while I made these, Naomi made some marshmallows for gifting. Coincidence or mind meld—I tend to think it’s the latter–that’s what happens when you have two bloggers under one roof.
The upside of having two bloggers in one home is we definitely won’t be short on having homemade food gifts on hand. The downside is we have two bloggers in the home, so we usually have a surplus of food. Although, I’m learning to get more creative and up-cycle surplus food into new dishes.
I would call them leftovers, but then I’d have to admit to Naomi and my mom that after many years of leftover aversion, I’m now embracing them. So don’t be surprised if you see a few of these Butterfinger Truffles in another dessert.
