Holiday Sweets: Peppermint Snowballs

It's funny how something that us Midwesterners tend to complain about, the weather, can actually become a time capsule of memories.    The white blanket of snow that covers the ground outside transports me back in time to when I was a kid.  Growing up there were lots of days spent building snow forts, making snow angels, hitting the highest hill in town with our toboggan, and of course a friendly snow ball fight.

Whenever we came inside, Ma always made us rich and creamy hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and a candy cane stirrer.  It make my heart and soul so happy to roll all those memories into these oh-so-adorable and crazy decadent truffles.
