Chocolate Truffles

I’m in the Christmas recipe sharing mood and these chocolate truffles are not only scrumptious, but super easy to make. They scream “Christmas” and make for a beautiful image. I love how they catch the light in the vintage bowl, creating shadows and depth.

Frame the image with fir or pine boughs, throw a few stars around, and you have set a perfectly festive mood for your flat lay photography.

I’ve shared the recipe below .. enjoy!
