“This recipe was actually a boo-boo. I was going to make a peppermint almond bark candy but decided that I had ground up the candy canes too much, so I decided to use a truffle recipe I had and used the finely ground candy canes in place of the other ingredients in the recipe and it turned out really tasty.”
