Dixie Crystals Insight
  1. Many of the Strawberry Shortcake Truffle recipes you find online contain Golden Oreos, but we found that results in a processed flavor that doesn't have the same mouthfeel as a traditional truffle.
  2. Strawberry Shortcake Truffles make a great gift. If giving them as a Valentine's Day present, print these Valentine's gift bag toppers and package in clear cellophane bags. 
  3. We also have all-season gift tags for you to print at home.
