Truffles are the ultimate treat for a devoted fan of chocolate. Rich and silky, they melt like butter on the tongue. These soft truffles have a hint of cherry flavor and are enrobed in dark chocolate. Dust them with cocoa or decorate them with a royal icing rosebud for an elegant appearance.
You can make these with just one heart candy mold; the truffle mixture will stay soft as long as it is lightly covered, and the chocolate can be re-melted gently between batches. You can also pipe the mixture into small paper cups and dust them with cocoa, roll chilled truffle mixture into balls and coat with sprinkles, nuts, or cocoa, or pipe shapes onto waxed paper and chill until firm.
If you can bear to part with them, indulge that special someone with the perfect Valentine’s gift…Dark Chocolate Truffle Hearts.
