Indulgent home made truffles for Valentine's Day

Chocolate truffles

First up are these rich, chocolately truffles that look gorgeous and are not as tricky to make as you might think.

Coating them in melted chocolate at the end is probably as difficult as it gets. All that’s needed preparation wise, is a quick trip to the supermarket for the ingredients.

Now if you really want to impress your Valentine and make your own chocolate gifts, it’s way easier than you think.

The reason I insist that you buy dark chocolate with a minimum 70% cocoa powder, is that dark chocolate has less sugar than milk chocolate. Also, the higher the percentage of cocoa or cacao powder, the better.

Choc dipped strawberries are so easy to make. They also look and taste amazing!

This is my favourite Valentine’s treat, as it was the first and most romantic one that I spent with my husband, Jayson. We were living and working on a tropical island (yep, really!) and we spent the afternoon on a little secluded beach around the back of the island. 

We had organised a picnic basket to take with us, but unbeknown to me, Jayson had also arranged a little surprise – choc dipped strawberries. I absolutely loved it, of course, and they went perfectly with our champagne!

So don’t underestimate the appeal of simple, thoughtful gifts.

I hope you enjoy your Valentine’s Day, whatever you are doing and whoever you are with.

Pin it for later!
