With Thanksgiving on Thursday, this week marks the start of the holiday season. Definitely my favorite time of year…but…I feel like it completely snuck up on me! Usually I’ve done at least some of my shopping, made a batch or two of Christmas cookies, and listened to at least a couple festive tunes.
So far I haven’t done any of those things (ok, maybe I snuck in a few festive tunes in the car…the radio has been playing them since Halloween, lol!). But I think the real reason why I feel like the end of November should not be here is because we’ve had weather in the 60’s and even 70’s since September! And not a single snowstorm…all we’ve had were a couple of light “flurry”-type snows, and nothing has stuck. Now I’m not complaining, but I live in snow country…we’re snow people! (See this post for some of last year’s snowy fun.) Even just three inches would help me feel like it’s actually time for the holidays to be here. ;)
What better way to be prepared than with food, right? I recently had the opportunity to sample some of Lindt’s Lindor Truffles, which are the perfect thing to have on hand, especially during the holidays.
This time of year unexpected visitors are the norm, which means I keep my candy bowl stocked to have a treat at the ready for guests (and if I’m being honest, to sneak an occasional treat myself). These truffles are wonderful for stuffing stockings, and they also make a very pretty addition to cookie trays (for those of you who usually get cookie trays from me – yes, your trays will have these lovely chocolates interspersed!).
But my very favorite way to use these truffles is this…
Nothing tastes quite like the Lindor Truffle. Created only by Lindt’s Master Chocolatiers, it’s exquisite chocolate filled with a smooth chocolate center. When the irresistible center starts to melt…so will you. Smooth. Flowing. Luscious. Chocolate like no other.
