Homemade Chocolate Truffles & other Christmas Recipes


Homemade chocolate truffles and loads more Christmas recipe inspiration

We cannot put it off any longer, Christmas is literally days away and it is time to start thinking about all the food you may be planning for Christmas day, and beyond.  Have you ordered the turkey yet? Catered for vegetarians? Booked your online Christmas shop? The list goes on and on…My one tip is be prepared, the more you can do in advance the more time you’ll have to relax on the ‘big day’. Above all, don’t worry too much, so what if you forget something, it won’t be the end of the world.

Great for last minute gifts, and we love making edible gifts, you can’t go wrong with homemade chocolate truffles. They are so easy to make, the whole family can participate, but they look very impressive, and you will feel very virtuous for making your own presents.

Do you make any edible presents? Do you have any traditional family Christmas recipes? We would love you to share them with us in the linky below.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
