One of my favorite parts of Valentine’s is the chocolate, lol. My hubby always gives me my favorite homemade chocolates from a local shop near us. I look forward to it every year! Dark chocolate raspberry truffles-yum!
What about you? What is your favorite part of Valentine’s Day?
Although the homemade ones my hubby brings me are the best, I have a recipe that’s pretty close to share with you! Enjoy!
Chocolate Raspberry Truffles
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- 1-1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 7-1/2 teaspoons seedless raspberry jam
- 6 ounces dipping chocolate (CandiQuik or Almond Bark are what I use)
- In a small heavy saucepan, combine butter, cream and chocolate chips. Cook over low heat for 4-5 minutes or until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in jam until combined. Transfer to a small freezer container; cover and freeze until mixture thickens and can be scooped.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes. Roll into balls; freeze until very firm.
- Place a wire rack over a large sheet of waxed paper. Melt dipping chocolate per package instructions. Cool slightly; spoon over balls. Place on the prepared wire rack. Let stand for 15 minutes or until set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 4 dozen.
