Boozy Chocolate Coated Christmas Truffles

You can’t beat a chocolate truffle at Christmas time, especially ones spiked with Baileys and drizzled with white chocolate. You will easily win over my ice cold heart with that combination. I’ve already made these truffles twice this month too and as you can imagine, neither batch have lasted me very long and now I’m being asked to make more for Christmas. So I think that’s enough clarification that these truffles are delicious.

Boozy Mince Pie Filling

 

MincePies3.jpgChristmas is only 5 days away and I’m still not feeling even the slightest bit Christmassy yet –  I rarely do anymore. Christmas is definitely a holiday for the kids rather than us older folk. So instead, I focus on the food and I celebrate each year by making my favourite Christmas recipes that I have created and re-created over the years and this mince pie filling is definitely my favourite and most used Christmas recipe.

Last year I wrote my first Christmas guide for the blog: Gift Ideas for the Home Cook, Foodie & Meat-Head. And while it didn’t get very many page likes, it was one of my most viewed posts. So this year I decided to write another guide; only this time for vegans: Gift Ideas for the Pedantic Vegan & Everyone In Between. Now, I don’t mean to insult anyone by the title, but I do feel that it is apt for the way some vegans live their lives – I am by no means judging – which can be intimidating for the average person who isn’t fully up-to-date with veganism and the lifestyle. And I know this to be true, as a few months ago I had my sister ring me in distress as she was stumped, as to what to buy a vegan: it was all last minute. I gave my sister many ideas, but in the end she settled on an orchid, from fear of having the gift not being fully appreciated.

So with this gift guide I aim to help you mere mortals – who may fear us vegans – with suitable gift ideas that are both thoughtful and easy to find, and will be greatly appreciated by any vegan – pedantic or anything in between.
