Are you looking for some gift-giving inspiration this holiday season? You can’t go wrong taste-wise or budget-wise with homemade gifts, especially if they’re chocolate. These truffles and cake balls recipes are sure to be a hit – without your budget taking a hit this holiday season.
The key is to not splurge too much on fancy chocolate – if you have an option among expensive chocolate, medium-priced chocolate, or cheap chocolate – go medium because your chocolate goodies will taste better. Unless there is a coupon for the expensive chocolate, you can get away with not using that.
Here are 20 Christmas-themed truffle and cake ball recipes that are easy to make and not expensive, ingredient-wise. These recipes are perfect for:
- Coworkers – bring these to your potluck or gift-exchange. They’re tasty, popular, and best of all – easy on your budget.
- Friends you don’t see often – save a couple for yourself 😉
- As an addition to a small gift – if you’re getting someone a small-sized gift, add on a small bag of these treats in a festive bag to make your gift seem bigger – without breaking your budget!
Which one of these treats will you be making? Let me know in the comments!
