White Chocolate Truffles

I know, ANOTHER treat for the entertaining season ahead. It is fast, easy and I will bet you make more than one recipe of these delectable delights…..

This will make about 6 dozen yummies so you can divide it up if you wish to do a different flavour or two.

  • 3 pkgs. white chocolate chips
  • 1 can Condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate liqueur

and (here, you can also change the flavouring) 1/2 tsp. of peppermint OR orange OR lemon flavouring

  • chocolate sprinkles
  • sanding sugar
  •  coconut

In a bowl over a pot of simmering water, melt the chips with the condensed milk. Remove from the heat and add the liqueur and flavouring. (I always warm the liqueur a bit so it doesn’t seize the chocolate). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.

Using a generous tsp. roll into a ball and then roll into whatever you are going to use (sprinkles, sanding sugar or coconut) and shake off the excess. If it gets too soft to work, just put it back in the refrigerator to get cold again.

Store in a covered container until party time. I bet you can’t just sample one.


Merry Berry Martini

What a way to start the Christmas “spirit”.  Try it!


  • 2 parts Raspberry Vodka
  • 1 part Chambord
  • 1 splash White Chocolate Liqueur

Make sure the martini glasses are chilled (frosty, actually). Pour the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice and shake it really well.  Strain into the icy cold glasses and add a couple of frozen berries (blackberries).

There, now go and open your gifts.

Oh My, My My Martini

Okay, so the temperature is getting hotter and the breeze from the patio/deck/beach is ever so gentle. What you need now is a martini that will have you saying “Oh My, My, My”.


It takes:

  • 2 parts chocolate vodka
  • 2 parts White Chocolate Liqueur
  • 1 part White Creme de Cacao
  • 1 part Irish Cream
  • 1 part Raspberry Liqueur (like Chambourd)

Melt some white chocolate and rim the glasses.  Place in the refrigerator to harden the chocolate.

Pour the Vodka and Creme de Caco in a shaker filled with crushed ice and shake well. Strain into the chilled glasses. Now pour the balance of the liquids into another shaker with crushed ice and shake well.

Here comes the fun part: Invert a spoon so that it rests on the opposite side of the glass (pointy end touching the base of the glass). Now slowly strain and  pour the ingredients over the first layer. This might take a little practice.  Garnish with a few fresh Raspberries.

Anyone you care to share this with will keep saying…’Oh My, My, My”.

Note: drink responsibly.

Coffee Martini #3

I figure you have guessed by now what my favourite flavors are…if you guessed chocolate, coffee and a few others, you now can figure why I really like this one.


You will need:

Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with cracked ice and shake well. Strain into chilled martini glasses. Garnish with one white chocolate curl and one coffee bean (chocolate covered, naturally).

A few of these over the next week and moving could become more fun! HAH! you dream.
