Step 3: Make the Garnishes
Remove from freezer and cut out small squares then remove from the waxed paper. Cut each corner off of the squares shaping the pieces into circles. I added a dragee on top for added decoration. This is optional. ***Reminder - if you do add dragees remove them before eating.
For the walnut garnish: If you cut the ends of the walnut off you will get a natural heart shape. You will get two to four hearts out of each walnut.
For the cranberry garnish: Since dried cranberries are hollow you can cut then into 1/8 inch slices and bend then to make little hearts. This might take a few tries but you will get two or three from each dried cranberry.
For the almond garnish: Cut an almond in half. Keep cutting in half until you have small square shapes that will fit nicely on top of your truffles.
