Did your mother ever say, “Look with your eyes, not your fingers”?
It’s next to impossible with this chocolate lover’s centerpiece!

Chocolate Truffles Topiary

You need:
1 round florists' foam topiary with dowel and base, 5 inches in diameter
Flowerpot to fit topiary base, about 6 inches in diameter
Rocks to weight flowerpot
36 to 48 chocolate truffles with firm centers, about 1 1/4 inches in diameter
Plastic wrap or aluminum foil
2 to 3 cups fresh raspberries
1 yard 1-inch-wide white and gold ribbon

Press topiary base securely in flowerpot (glue if necessary). Fill pot 2/3 full with rocks.

Insert toothpicks into topiary ball; push truffles onto toothpicks.

Line top of pot with plastic wrap; cover with raspberries. Tie ribbon into bow on dowel.

Fresh raspberries out of season? Use fancy assorted nuts instead.
