With all the stress of the holidays, neighbor gifts should not be among them. Chocolate truffles with protein to the rescue!

The fact that these chocolate truffles have the health benefits of protein and the natural sweetness of dates means you aren’t just giving any treat plate. You are giving the ultimate in health and happiness! The fact that these are simple certainly doesn’t hurt either. All the time in making these is the time they take to set up in the freezer while you do other things.

So get your holiday and ho ho ho going with a neighbor gift that will make you seem as generous and awesome as the old guy in the red suit. Spread the love to the neighborhood this year!
