Skinny Fat Elvis Truffles

Roughly a year or so ago I shared a pic of this lovely little treat, but it was only this morning I got around to making it again and taking decent pics. Why now?

Well I’m hosting Sweet Adventures Blog Hop once again this month and rather than just tell you the theme I figured I’d kick off with a recipe too!

December SABH is about celebration and versatility, all wrapped up in the perfect bite-size dessert — Heavenly Holiday Truffles!

SABH December 2013 - TrufflesThe details:

  • Theme: ‘Heavenly Holiday Truffles’
  • Hostess: JJ from 84th & 3rd
  • Hop opens: Monday 16 December 2013, 9 am (AEST, Sydney Australia)
  • Hop closes: Friday 20 December 2013, 11.59 pm (AEST)

How to participate:

  • Make a dessert fitting the theme for the month, post your creation on your blog during the week of the blog hop.
  • Visit the hostess post (on this site) when the hop opens and follow the instructions to link up.
  • Hop through all the themed creations to discover new recipes and new blogs.

Remember… Only new posts which go live on or after the day the hop opens can be linked up.

Sweet Adventures Blog Hop, aka SABH, is a monthly dessert link-up. Each month there is a new theme and the hop is open to anyone who blogs recipes. SABH is run by JJ from 84th & 3rd and regular guest hostesses.

Skinny Fat Elvis Truffles

Truffles are a wonderful treat for any time of year but they really come into their own around the holidays.

While they tend to start and end with chocolate they can come in hundreds of variations to suit any occasion or taste. Pop them on sticks and add a bit of edible fun to a floral centre piece. Toss them into the centre of a cookie tray for a bit of variety. Or simply sneak a few with an after-dinner cup of tea.

Skinny Fat Elvis Truffles

From traditional dark chocolate dusted with cocoa powder, to white chocolate orange blossom, to carrot cake, to vegan chocolate peanut butter, to bounty bites — the options are truly endless.

So let your imagination go crazy this month, mix up your favourite flavours and get rolling, dusting and dipping!

    they look so yummy, i have never made a truffle, and to be honest i would not even really be able to define what one is if asked!
    Peanut butter and chocolate is one of my favourite combinations, so you know i think i might try yours ;)

    Ooh such a good idea. My brain is already ticking!

    My brain is ticking too! What an awesome way to justify making (eating) truffles. .

    This challenge will be my first for SABH, and I already know what I’ll be making… does it need to be an original (as in my own) recipe, or just one that we wanted to make and share…?

      Great to have you join us! Any recipe you would post on your blog (original or credited as adapted from) is fine!
