Chocolate truffles for your special Valentine
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.

Home made chocolate
Now if you really want to impress your Valentine and make your own chocolate gifts, it’s way easier than you think.
This is dark chocolate, made with just 3 basic ingredients – you add your own extras. Nuts, coconut, dried fruit, etc.
There aren’t any emulsifiers in this chocolate, so it needs to be kept in the fridge, after it’s been set.

Valentine’s choc dipped strawberries
Choc dipped strawberries are almost cheating when it comes to impressive home made treats. They’re so easy to make and they look and taste amazing!
This is actually my favourite Valentine’s treat, as it was the first and most romantic Valentine’s Day that I spent with my husband, Jayson.
We were living and working on a tropical island in North Queensland at the time (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 treats and gifts.
I hope you enjoy your Valentine’s Day, whatever you are doing and whoever you are with.
