DIY Valentine’s Day! 7 Sweet Truffle Recipes

CHOCOLATE!

Want to make your Valentine’s Day even sweeter this year? Then skip the store-bought chocolates and make your own treats! We’ve got 7 amazing truffle recipes just for you.

Salted Caramel Truffle
Salted caramel is a relative newcomer to the American sweet-world, but it’s already made a huge impact in just a few years. This recipe comes from Bon Appetit on epicurious.com – go check it out and make some salty-sweet treats.

Chocolate Raspberry Truffle
Incoming Pun: If you’re looking for a berry good recipe, check out Elizabeth LaBau’s article on About.com. The taste of raspberries with rich chocolate can’t be beat!

I’m berry sorry about the pun.

Dark Chocolate Truffle
Ah, the Classic. It’s hard to go wrong with rich dark chocolate, so if you’re not sure where to start, this is the recipe we’d recommend. It comes from Tyler Florence on FoodNetwork.com and you’re sure to love it.

Orange Creamsicle Truffle
Looking for something besides chocolate? Than why not try these orange creamsicle truffles from Jaclyn of CookingClassy.com? They’re a fun, creamy, citrusy delight and make for a nice change.

Espresso Truffle
I love coffee, my friends, and I love chocolate, so what could be better than combining the two?

This recipe from Ken Haedrich of RealSimple.com mixes that wonderful, earthy bitterness of espresso with sweet, soft chocolate. Yummy.

Peanut Butter Truffle
Well of course I’d have a peanut butter recipe on my list – no candy compilation is complete without this lovely legume.

This recipe, courtesy of Food Network Kitchen, is just for the filling, but it offers a wealth of ideas for the coating (sprinkles, wafer cookies, coconut, etc.)

Chocolate Covered Cherry (Not Actually) Truffles
Okay – we’re cheating with this one. This recipe from Startnover on Food.com is for chocolate covered cherries, not truffles. In our defense, they do look like truffles and they’re going to taste amazing.

We hope you enjoy these recipes! Thanks again to all the great chefs out there – and best of luck to everyone trying these out for the first time.
