It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is GERMAN CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES!
Who loves chocolate truffles as much as I do? These might not be the typical candies you’d find in a candy store, but they’re easy to make and still delicious. Oh, man! My mouth is watering just posting this blog!
I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
