Christmas time always brings back so many memories. Memories of Christmas Eve spent at my grandparents house with all the cousins running around; making gingerbread houses with the kids; going to the Trail of Lights to see the amazing spectacle of lights; being so excited to open up a gift on Christmas Eve; going to midnight mass with the family; and watching A Christmas Story nonstop on Christmas day.
Another fond memory is making so a variety of treats to give out to family members and friends as gifts. One year I made 13 different cookies to pass out. My dad was in hog heaven. Making treats is something I enjoy doing every year and gives me the chance to share the holiday spirit with loved ones.
This year I included my coworkers and local firefighters in my treat give-aways. I made several different cookies/edible gifts and packaged them in Rubbermaid TakeAlongs because they are so convenient. The containers keep the treats fresh and make it easy for you to share them with others. Rubbermaid TakeAlongs come is several different sizes and shapes so whatever you make, you can find a container to fit it in on your next trip to Walmart. They’re easy to find so stock up so you can share your favorite treats this holiday season.

Chocolate Mint Truffles

1 oz raisins
1/4 c maple syrup
12 oz chocolate bark
Peppermint crunch and mint baking chips
Chop milk chocolate into small chunks.
Heat heavy cream in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. The cream should be hot to the touch but not boiling. Turn off the heat.
Add the chocolate and butter to the cream and stir to melt.
In a small food processor, add raisins and maple syrup. Process until finely minced. Add raising purée into chocolate mixture. Let sit for at least 6 hours or overnight to cool. If chocolate is still to loose, add to refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour to set.
Prepare a cookie sheet by lining with wax paper.
Use a small cookie scoop to form small balls and place on the parchment paper.
Melt chocolate bark according to package instructions. Finely chop baking bits.
Use toothpicks or forks to dip balls in chocolate. Tap toothpick or forks on side of chocolate bowl to remove excess chocolate. Place balls back on wax paper. Sprinkle baking chips on top. Allow to set for a few minutes.
