New Year’s Eve

A dozen nutella truffles on a blue tabletop

Nutella Truffles

Orbs of Nutella, chocolate, and cream, all dusted in cocoa powder. Need we say more?

Three Champagne cocktails with a Champagne cork an a plate of sugar cubes beside the drinks.

Truffled mac and cheese in four mini-casserole pans, one with a fork and a few mouthfuls missing.
