We're starting with these decadent chocolate truffles. Truffles are great for the holidays because they require very few ingredients. And they're pretty fun to make. These have an extra crunch, thanks to an unexpected college favorite. Can you guess? Ramen noodles. Instant ramen noodles. That's really good.

They have something savory sandwiched inside. It looks meat-like. It is definitely meaty. Oh, no. Give it a try. Any guesses? Pulled pork. Close. It is bacon. Specifically, bacon jam. Really?
