Cranberry Walnut Truffles

It’s funny how our tastebuds change because when I was little you couldn’t pay me to eat anything with nuts. For some reason I thought only old people liked nuts…and mushrooms. Well you definitely need to be a nut lover to enjoy these Cranberry Nut Truffles. They are full of walnuts, salty pretzels, and chopped cranberries. And apparently I’m old not because I loved them. Put them in a cute mini paper wrapper and on your Christmas trays.

Speak Your Mind



  1. I love these! So festive, they’re perfect for this time of year!! I seem to be finding myself putting walnuts and cranberries in everything lately haha, they just go together so well!! Thanks for the recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love trying new truffle recipes! This is so lovely!!

  3. Do you think these would ship well? Do the “leftovers” (if any!!!) need to be refrigerated or can they stay at room temp?

  4. some of my favorite foods now are ones I couldn’t stand as a kid and the ones I try to avoid now were my favorites. Crazy how things change. At least for me my love of ketchup and cream cheese has faded. Much better for my health.

  5. Hi there…I am going into a cookie exchange and need to make 9 dozen of these. Do you know if they can be made ahead and frozen (ie 1-2 weeks before the exchange?). Thanks!

  6. Wow, pretty sure I couldn’t resist these….pinning!

  7. About how many little truffles should this make? Trying to decide if I’ll need to double the recipe.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Those look so sophisticated! Cannot wait to try…bring on the Christmas baking!

  9. These are delicious :).

  10. What can I replace the pretzels with to make them gluten free? gF pretzels are very expensive

  11. I used pecans as that is all I had and came out delicious!! Thanks for a great, easy recipe.
