Boozy Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles and more Christmas Cookie Recipes

Boozy chocolate hazelnut truffles and more Christmas cookie recipes

Today I’m sharing my Boozy Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles and more Christmas cookie recipes from some of my friends. (Be sure to follow over on my Instagram too!) My favorite Christmas memory is for sure holiday baking and all the Christmas cookies. My mom used to do a cookie swap every year with her girlfriends. She would make a bunch of cookies ahead of time and pop them in the freezer. My sisters and I knew where they were and we’d go down and sneak some when no one was looking. One year, my mom went to go to her cookie swap and all the cookies were gone! She had to make over 6 dozen cookies last minute, needless to say she wasn’t happy but we laugh about it now.

These chocolate hazelnut truffles are dairy free and made with my homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Liqueur.  They’re super rich and decadent and make great homemade gifts too!
