Beat the holiday Stress!
Several years ago a friend, Kathy Langer, gave me a book called Christmas Therapy by Karen Katafiasz. I have always gotten a little crazy in years past getting everything done I wanted to, which defeated the purpose for the season for me and, most important, my long suffering family. As I have aged I have mellowed and my priorities have changed. This book has helped me with that journey.
Every Christmas season I get out Christmas Therapy and read the different ways to enjoy the season. There are 30 different ways listed and the one that helps me keep everything in perspective is #6 which reads: “Simplify your celebration. Big is not always best. Expensive is not always valuable. Time consuming is not always lasting.”
Today I am sharing a fast and easy recipe that is a perfect hostess gift. Enjoy and may this Christmas bring you the love and joy of the season!
Almond White Chocolate Truffles:
1 - 12 oz package white chocolate chips
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp almond flavoring or less
finely chopped almonds
Melt white chocolate, stir in sour cream and flavoring, chill at least 2 hours. Roll into small balls and then roll into chopped almonds. May place in small muffin tin liners. Refrigerate.
