I am in full swing of holiday baking. I like to give gifts of holiday treats.

I make batches of cookies, bars and all kinds of confection sweets. I go to the container store and buy cute little bakery boxes, pretty string, and artistic tags.

I fill boxes full of my assorted treats and drop the boxes off in my friend’s mailboxes.  It is what I enjoy doing and I want to share it with those I love.  That is what the holidays are about, sharing and appreciating those we love.

Coming up with fun new confections can be a success or a failure.  Making up a batch of these Chocolate Peppermint Truffle Bars was super simple and quick except for the time waiting for it to firm up in the freezer.  I am a huge peppermint and chocolate fan.  I think the combo is the perfect holiday partnership.

Since I am a huge peppermint and chocolate combo fan, and I think they make the perfect holiday partnership.

These truffle bars must be kept cool, and look pretty served in a paper baking cup.  Store them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks and they can be covered and frozen for up to two months.
