Peppermint Sugar Cookie Truffle

Happy Friday friends!
It really is the most wonderful time of the year! I love this time of year, although it has been a little more tough some days when I think about it being the first Christmas with out my gram. One thing that has helped is seeing the joy on the faces of others through this season! Giving gifts is one of my love languages, and you could say wrapping gifts is a close second 🙂

 

Another part of the season I really enjoy is baking! I love to bake and give tasty treats to my friends and loved ones! After my Christmas party 2 weeks ago, I had a ton of left over sugar cookies!

 

I didn’t want to just throw them away, so I decided to reuse them for a different dessert!
I am linking up with my fav Foodie Friday gals, Farrah from Fairyburger and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for another new recipe!
