What You Need To Make This Blue Christmas Truffles Recipe?

Steps To Make Blue Christmas Truffles:
Step 1: To start combine 2 cups of chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream to create a delightful mixture. Microwave this blend stirring it every 30 seconds until it turns into a marvel.
Step 2: Afterwards add in 2 tablespoons of Blue Curacao to infuse a color and a hint of citrusy charm. Allow this mixture to chill for two hours ensuring it reaches the right consistency.
Step 3: Now comes the fun part! Take heaping teaspoons of the mixture shape them into balls and gently roll them in sparkling sanding sugar.
Step 4: Place these orbs on a baking sheet. Let them chill for an hour to set perfectly for your festive enjoyment.
To make the truffles grab an ice cream scoop or a melon baller. Scoop out the mixture. This way you’ll have truffles that’re all the same size and it’ll be much easier to roll them without getting too messy. Once you’ve scooped them out give them a roll, between your palms to make them nice and smooth before coating them with sanding sugar. This technique ensures that your truffles will be perfectly round and evenly sized giving them an attractive appearance. It’s a time saver when you’re busy, during the holiday season!
