Neighbor Christmas Gift: Utah Truffles.
These truffles are decadent and delicious.
They are very popular in our area (Western USA).
Typically they sell for .50 each at grocery stores however, on sale at Costco currently (December 2023) they are only .20 cents each.
These truffles are my mom’s favorite.
I have a few friends who have also claimed them as their ‘chocolate truffles of choice’.
Personally, I’m more of a Lindt fan myself (see my Christmas neighbor gifts with Lindor/Lindt chocolate truffles if you are as well) but, to each their own.
They are really good, just not my personal favorite.
So far I have seen them in Mint Milk Chocolate, Toffee Truffle Milk Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate flavors.
I made these Utah Truffles as neighbor Christmas gifts because I know that many people love these truffles so I know they’d make great neighbor gifts.
I actually gifted these to my children’s school teachers.
They are very simple to put together and if on sale, are very reasonably priced—costing less than $2.00 each for nine.
They have pretty yet bulky packaging too so it makes a larger beautiful gift bag.

Directions on how to make this Neighbor Christmas Gift: Utah Truffles
Continue reading and/or watch the video to see the assembly process.
1. Open the cellophane bag and press down on the bottom of it so that it is flat (if you have bought the gusset bottom type of cellophane bag).
2- Put 8 truffles into the bag and I recommend making sure the front of the label is facing out for a nicer-looking end product as there is an ugly skew barcode on the back.
3- Tie a knot around the cellophane bag with a Christmas string.
4- Take the remaining 9th truffle and hole punch the top of the truffle packaging (without puncturing the seal of the chocolate) and then add it to the string/ribbon by tying a double knot.
5- Trim the ends of the string to be even.
That’s it, these only take a minute or two each to assemble and are a sure crowd-pleaser.
