Easy Candy Truffles for Valentine Treat

Print PrintShare with Friends

As I am in the middle of dieting with low carb I get so missing chocolate. There are different chocolates that are dark that will hit the button of rich for me. But I made these to take to a family baby shower and they are sooo good and rich I wanted to share with online friends. No they are not low carb but yes, they are a wonderful treat. Enjoy

I always buy a storage box at the $ store, For Valentine they would have a plastic red heart box that is perfect storage for these little gems. Keep chilled till you want to serve them and let set 15 minutes. They are rich and good and you can give just a few and spread them around to friends, family and your special senior in care! YUMMY
