Strawberry Container as Gift Basket May 5, 2012

I made some cake batter truffles for a friend and wanted to package them in a creative and cute way.  So.. this is what I came up with.

 

I cut the top off a plastic strawberry container.  I lined the “basket” portion of the container with tissue paper and placed the truffles inside.  I found some ribbon and wrapped it around the container and finished it off with an awesome gift tag I found on Pinterest.

 

So these gift tags looked so cute and I was bummed because I had to print them in black and white.  I’ve been wanting a color printer for some time.  There are so many cute printables on Pinterest and they would look so much better in color!  I hit my breaking point and finally bought a color printer, so my next project will be in color.  So excited!

Cake Batter Truffles – Yummy!

I’ve had this recipe pinned for a long time, and decided to finally make them for a friend.  These were easy to make and delicious!  My daughter was able to help by adding sprinkles!  This is a great recipe!

Substitutions:  I put in too much milk.  The dough wasn’t stiff enough to roll, so I added just a bit more flour.  Also, I did not add any cake mix to the white candy melts.

Time:  1 hour

 

These were awesome.  One thing I love to do with truffles is freeze them.  They make a great snack in the middle of the day when you a little somethin’ but don’t want to eat an entire pan of brownies!

Enjoy!
