I hope everyone is enjoying their December so far!  For those of you who haven’t started baking yet – don’t fret!  Here is a quick no-bake cookie/truffle that will impress!

This is a classic no-bake cookie recipe that if you are Italian you have likely tired before.  These truffles are ridiculously easy to prepare.  The most time consuming part is forming the balls.  I am a perfectionist so this is the part that frustrated me the most.  However, these treats have a beautiful presentation and would look great on any holiday cookie tray or even packed in a pretty box as a hostess gift or gift for a friend.  

Keep in mind, these truffles taste like star anise so if you are not a fan of this flavour you may wish to substitute the liqueur for a lemon, orange, or cinnamon flavoured liqueur which I think would taste just as delicious.

Happy no-baking!
