Mulled Wine

Traditionally enjoyed in Europe during the Christmas season, this wine is served warm and makes any holiday gathering more festive.

These delectable truffles make great holiday gifts. For pretty packing, look for mini foil or paper candy cups in the baking aisle of supermarkets or at specialty shops. While the truffles are still slightly soft, roll them in the desired coatings. Kids might like to help with this step.

Bittersweet chocolate and cream make the basic ganache at the center of these truffles that can be rolled in a variety of coatings. Try chopped nuts, toasted coconut, confectioners' sugar, or cocoa powder.

Rolling these classic Christmas cookies in powdered sugar once while they're still warm and again when they're completely cooled ensures their snowball-like appearance.
