Many years ago I started making homemade candy for Christmas. It has turned into quite an adventure and I am up to about 15 different kinds every year. One of my favorite types of homemade candies to make is this easy mint truffle recipe. They are quick to make and the chocolate flavor is so incredibly rich!

Whether you want to enjoy them for yourself or give them as a gift, you really need to try making truffles this year!

How to Make Homemade Truffles

Since I am not a huge fan of artificial ingredients, I use

naturally dyed sprinkles. They are not quite as vibrant as the artificial ones but still came out quite nice. I also rolled some of them in powdered sugar or cocoa powder. Use a high-quality

peppermint extract for flavor. You can also make your own mint extract if you are ambitious.
