Rated as 4.53 out of 5 Stars

"Truffles make a great homemade gift at the holidays. Say thank you to a friend or co-worker with a nice box of truffles. Arrange several truffles in a pretty silver box or other tin; decorate inside of box with colorful wax paper. Wrap with bow. Re-usable tins are a nice keepsake, too."
