As everyone in my neighborhood knows, Christmas is my very favorite time of year. I make many cookies, cakes and candies - including this easy but elegant recipe - to give to relatives and friends. The aroma of the chocolate and raspberry is heavenly when you're making these truffles.

You'll need only three ingredients to make these fluffy chocolate bites. The quick, creamy confections get a pretty look when rolled in ground almonds as shown here. Placed in foil candy cups, they make a special gift when presented in a festive holiday tin.
I adapted a creamy, dreamy truffle recipe from a chocolate cookbook and came up with my variation to give as gifts. Rum and nutmeg add a bit of classic eggnog flavor.—Carla Manning, Grantsburg, Wisconsin
